CILK-FM traces its origins to
December 21, 1984when the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commissionawarded a new FM license for the Kelowna market to Silk FM BroadcastingLtd., a company two-thirds controlled by veteran radio broadcaster Nick Frost.
CILK-FM signed on for the first time at 101.5 mHz with a
Soft Adult Contemporaryformat at 10 AM, June 21, 1985, with an average effective radiated power of 11,000 watts. The transmitter had a northward-directed pattern from the 3,200 foot level of Okanagan Mountain, 7 kilometres south of Kelowna city centre.
May 7, 1993 Silk FM BroadcastingLtd. applied to amend its broadcasting licence by relocating the transmitter site on Okanagan Mountain approximately 3 kilometers to the south and by decreasing the effective radiated power from 11,000 to 10,300 watts. The applicant indicated these changes would improve service to the Central Okanagan area. On July 19of the same year, the CRTC approved the application.
In 1995, Nick Frost hired a single employee whose mandate was to start up an Internet Service Provider (ISP). The work place, and all the associated equipment, was set up in the lobby of the radio station Silk FM. By the end of the first week of operation there were five brand new Internet subscribers. Within five years the subscriber list was up to about 6000. In 2000, Silk.Net ISP was sold to
Pacific Coast NetInc., which itself was subsequently sold to Uniserve CommunicationsInc. That same year, Silk FM Broadcasting Ltd. launched an online news and local information Web portal Castanet.net.
At the end of June, 2004, CILK-FM changed from “Soft Rock” to “All 80’s” which lasted until Labour Day of the same year, when it adopted an “80's, 90's & Now”
classic rockformat. On October 5, the CRTC announced that Silk FM Broadcasting had applied to add rebroadcast transmitters in the nearby Okanagan cities of Vernon and Penticton, in addition to its owned and operated rebroadcast transmitters at Big WhiteMountain and Magna Bay. On February 28, 2005, the CRTC denied the application to add the transmitters into Vernon and Penticton on the grounds that it would result in a significant increase to the coverage of CILK-FM into the adjacent radio markets.
May 3, 2006, several years after Nick Frostbought out minority shareholders of Silk FM BroadcastingLtd. and became sole owner of the company, he announced the sale of CILK-FM and its two broadcast transmitters to Standard RadioInc. for a total purchase price of $9.25 million CAD. The sale was approved unconditionally by the CRTC in December 2006.
In the summer of 2007, Silk FM modified its format to
adult contemporary, playing contemporary and modern hits and continues to be owned and operated by the Standard RadioInc., the largest privately-held radio broadcasting company in Canada. Nick Frost, for his part, has renamed Silk FM BroadcastingLtd. to Castanet MediaLtd. to own and operate his sole remaining business, local news and information online portal [http://www.castanet.net/ Castanet.net] . Interestingly, Castanet.net switched news partners from Frost's former station CILK-FM to his former cross-town competitors, CKOV-FM(branded as "B-103 Kelowna's Best Country") and CKLZ-FM(branded as "Power 104 Modern Rock"), both of which are owned by the Jim Pattison Group.
In October 2007,
Astral Mediaacquired Standard Broadcasting's terrestrial radio and television assets, including CILK-FM.
