Three of Winnipeg’s premier radio stations are adjusting nicely to their spectacular state-of-the-art digital studios in St. James.
Corus Entertainment — housing CJOB, Power 97 and Groove FM — recently moved into the former CTV Winnipeg building at Polo Park and invited ChrisD.ca along for a tour on Tuesday.
The building at 1440 Jack Blick Avenue is a major upgrade from the stations’ previous digs at 930 Portage Avenue, where CJOB had its headquarters since the 1960s.
Corus has been operating out of the remodeled building since March and held its official grand opening party with special guests last night.
Earlier this year, the city renamed the former Rapelje Avenue to Jack Blick Avenue, in honour of CJOB 68 founder J.O. Blick. Blick founded the station on March 11, 1946 and was a Second World War Veteran.
