Kelowna's Soft 103.9 CKOO FM may rise from the COVID rubble with a bid to reopen the station.  More in this article from Broadcast Dialogue...

Colour me pleasantly surprised, I guess.

The Kelowna market, on average, operates at a significant loss, and that 's pre-COVID. ( page 30.

The market has too many stations, and 103.9 is at a further disadvantage being a stand-alone. Vista bailed, Castanet bailed. Paul's got radio in his blood and a ton of experience, but the deck is extremely stacked against him here.

Re: Bid to Take Over License of CKOO-FM

Looks like the application for the recently closed CKOO radio in Kelowna BC has been approved.  CKOO was the first and one of only a few radio stations in Canada to close so far because of the impact on advertising from COVID-19.
