Metro Detroit: Newsmakers Nov. 8, 2009




Windsor's 95.9 FM CJWF is a brand new country station built from the ground up. It debuted on Sept. 22, 2009 and is currently in a testing period. The new radio station will officially launch on Nov. 16, 2009 with a complete staff of air personalities. Many of the DJs were individuals who were laid off from other radio and television stations in the Windsor area. 95.9 CJWF will offer a mix of old and new country music with news updates at the top of each hour. "This is one of the rare occasions where we're building a station from the bottom up," said Rod Martens, program director of the 95.9 CJWF. "Everything from the console, hiring the new staff, doing all the imaging and of course getting together the library of music we're doing. It's been three months pretty well and we're just so close right now, putting the finishing touches on the studio and then we're ready to go on Nov. 16." The staff at CJWF raced to get the new station on the air just three weeks after 106.7 The Fox switched to a different music format... 95.9 FM CJWF debuts as new country station from Windsor, Ont. (Thu, 11/5)
