Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada

CKED/CFQK - 103.5 Larry FM
(Station changed formats on May 18, 2005)

Northwest Broadcasting's Larry FM debuted in October 2004 as a simulcast on 103.5 CKED, which has a signal that hits the downtown Thunder Bay area, and 104.5 CFQK, which broadcasts to listeners outside of the urban area.

In January 2005, CHR formatted Hot 105, owned by Newfoundland Capital Corporation, flipped to classic rock as Giant 105, leaving the area without a new music outlet. Local radio onlookers knew that it was just a matter of time before another station flipped to fill the CHR hole in the market.

On May 18, 2005, owner Northwest Broadcasting flipped Larry FM to CHR, taking the abandoned Hot FM name for itself and dropping Variety Hits after just seven months.
