In 1974, CFAR Flin Flon was approved for a sister station in The Pas. CJAR-1240 began with 15 hours per week of local programming, including one hour in Cree.

In 2003 at 6:00 p.m., CJZZ-FM Winnipeg signed on as Cool FM. Owner Izzy Asper had a lifelong desire to own a jazz station, but passed away half a year later. Corus took ownership of the station on July 30, 2007, moving it into the CJOB-AM and CJKR-FM facilities at 930 Portage Avenue. CJZZ became CJGV-FM Groove FM at 7:14 p.m. on November 5, 2007, with Isaac Hayes doing the imaging.


In 2005, CILK-FM Kelowna was denied rebroadcast transmitters in Vernon and Penticton. Founder Nick Frost would sell the station to Standard Radio the next year.

In 2006, Jim (J.J.) Johnston became General Manager of CHMJ-AM, CKNW-AM, CFOX-FM and CFMI-FM, collectively known as Corus Radio Vancouver. He had previously been GM of Corus Radio Toronto.
