Link to CKOV Memories by Mike Cleaver
Having experimented with Church Service broadcasts and musical programs on a friend's Ham station, James W. B. Browne decided to start a commercial radio station. He used his own money to get it going and then "sold shares" for $2.00 each. At one of his license renewal hearings years later, he was told by the regulator to "clean up" the ownership of the station. It took him several years, and even then, they could not find some of the people who had "donated" to the resources of CKOV.
The station was in the Browne family for over fifty years before it was sold to Seacoast Communications Group in the late 1980s.
In 1964, CKOV founded CKOV-FM, which, when sold to Seacoast Communications, became CKLZ-FM.
