In September of 2000, Wave 94.7fm introduced an exciting new radio format into the Southern Ontario market with the launch of CIWV-FM.
On August 1st, 2011, nearly 11 years after its launch, Wave moved to ‘broadcast’ exclusively over the Internet at www.wave.fm, freeing up the 94.7 frequency for its new “sister station”, CHKX-FM.
On January 7, 2016, The Wave launched back onto the airwaves via a digital signal – HD Radio – available on 94.7 FM HD-2. HD Radio devices receive a digital signal using existing FM frequencies and require no Internet connection or monthly fee. Hybrid Digital radios will allow you to listen at home, work and in your vehicle in the GTA/Hamilton area.
The Wave continues to deliver a unique, relaxing adult music format based upon popular vocal artists combined with energetic contemporary instrumentalists – based on funk and rock fundamentals, totally unique to Southern Ontario. It’s all hosted by most of the regular on air personalities you’ve come to enjoy over the years.
This format appeals proudly to 25 to 65 year old professionals with high income and high propensity to enjoy a high quality lifestyle.
Enjoyed by thousands of listeners on line and now in HD, The Wave presents a marketing opportunity where advertisers can take advantage of this exclusive, upscale audience to promote their businesses. The Wave offers regular 30 and 60 second commercials within its programming, as well as leaderboard and big box ads on its website and media player plus 15 second audio/video pre-roll ads on its streaming audio player.
