Top Dog: CKNW – The New Westminster Years
Celebrate CKNW’s 75th anniversary with us! In 1944, a small radio station went on the air, broadcasting from New Westminster’s Windsor Hotel. This station would go on to be “B.C.’s Most Listened-to Station,” occupying an important place in the community. It established the Orphans’ Fund in 1945 and raised money for it by a variety of community events. Using archival sources and focusing on the 1950s, we will examine the station’s years in the Royal City: its personalities, its programs, and more. Registration required.
