Regina Saskatchewan

In 1975-1976 the Big 1300 CJME AM radio played Top 40 Music and was in competition with CKCK Regina that played adult contemporary. The owners and managers at that time were Gord and Doug Rawlinson.

In 1975 Ken Connors was offered an on-air show at CJME AM, Regina Saskatchewan. He used the name Chuck Connors.

CJME was founded in 1959. In 1967 CJME was purchased by the Rawlinson family, owners of CKBI radio and TV in Prince Albert. Their company later came to be called Rawlco Communications.

With the changes in AM radio, CJME became a "News Talk 1300 CJME" in 1998. It was about then, that many radio stations started switching frequencies. The 1300 kHz frequency used by CJME was always disliked because of its limited reach outside of Regina. It seemed the further down the dial, the better and further the reception was. CKRM-AM gave up its 980 kHz frequency to take up 620 kHz when CKCK-AM radio closed down. When 980 kHz was available, CJME moved to that spot on the radio dial in 2001 and later became News Talk 980.
