CHSN-FM (Sun FM), Estevan, Golden West Broadcasting Ltd.
On April 26, Golden West Broadcasting Ltd. was granted a licence for a new FM station at Estevan. It would offer an eclectic music format targeted to a broad audience with a wide range of musical tastes. All of the programming would be local. The station would operate on a frequency of 102.3 MHz with an effective radiated power of 100,000 watts. Golden West owned CJSL-AM, the only other local radio station serving Estevan. The applicant considered that a joint AM/FM operation would enable it to offer the people Estevan and south-eastern Saskatchewan a broader range of service.
CHSN-FM “Sun 102.3” signed on the air in November.
On August 13 the CRTC renewed CHSN-FM's licence to August 31, 2014.
