"When played in the Vancouver area" has been deleted by a consistent vandal. Can anyone confirm that away games are also broadcast in their entirety? --Wetman 10:23, 29 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Copy-edit; cut several comments[edit]

  • "However, due to recent changes with on-air talent and programming many are predicting it is set to tumble in the ratings and assume a position similar to CFUN 1410." Many? Who?
  • "The station has been facing increasing criticism that it is becoming a pared-down version of its former self." Criticism from who?909
  • "(under the approval of the CRTC)" (redundant; all media sales must be approved by CRTC).

I checked recent ratings here and changed "one of the leading" to "consistently leading". Is there another talk station that ever beats CKNW in the ratings? -- Jim Douglas (talk) (contribs) 05:30, 15 October 2006 (UTC) CKNW has been the #1 talk show radio station in the BBM (Bureau of Broadcast Measurement) Vancouver market ratings since Webster left CJOR in 1976. (CJOR did beat CKNW several times prior to this watershed event.) It has been the overall #1 radio station (any format) in the Vancouver market on all but a handful of occasions. This dominance of the ratings was established in the early 1960's. This statistic, however, is more about bragging rights than advertising revenue, as advertisers target specific audience groups, and CKNW's audience tends to an older, generally less desirable demographic.Danroach 23:14, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Line-Up reads like a press release[edit]

The Line-Up section is overly long, wordy, and lacks NPOV. For instance, it mentions the "senior meteorologist." Definitely a candidate for clean-up. Ronstew (talk) 08:18, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, bearcat, for cleaning this up. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ronstew (talkcontribs) 16:09, 6 December 2008 (UTC)
