About Us 關於電台

Fairchild Radio

加拿大中文電台AM1470/FM96.1是隸屬於新時代傳媒集團的商營多元文化電台,於溫哥華廣泛地提供超過30種語言的廣播服務,包括華語、印度語、西班牙語、韓語,以至意大利、俄羅斯、越南等語言,其中以中文廣播時段最長,每星期達至240小時。AM1470和FM96.1攜手為大溫地區華人提供一星期7日,每日24小時的國、粵語廣播,覆蓋範圍遠至東面Chilliwack、南至Victoria、西至Nanaimo、北至Squamish。

根據2011年溫哥華人口普查顯示,大溫哥華的人口為2,313,328人,是少數族裔的最大社群。為了應付這個龐大的市場需要,加拿大中文電台AM1470於1993年成立,聯同於1997年成立以國語廣播為主的電台FM96.1,迅速發展成為全溫哥華最具影響力的中文電台。為了順應近年人口結構的變化,AM1470和FM96.1引進首屈一指的先進科技,接通世界各地,製作不同類型的節目以滿足聽眾的實際需要。

Established in 1993, Fairchild Radio Group is Canada’s only national multicultural radio network. With operations in Vancouver, Toronto and Calgary, Fairchild Radio has been serving the multicultural communities of Canada with three FM and two AM stations. CJVB-AM1470 is Vancouver’s most established, most complete multicultural radio station, and with the addition of CHKG-FM96.1 in 1997, Fairchild Radio has been able to target the fast growing Mandarin-speaking audience in Vancouver. Together the two stations provide 144 hours of Cantonese programming, 96 hours of Mandarin programming, plus broadcasting services to more than 40 ethnic communities in over 30 languages on a weekly basis.

在過去連續5次加國極具代表性的市場調查結果顯示(1995、1998、2000、2005及2007),加拿大中文電台均獨佔鰲頭,五連冠成為溫哥華最受歡迎的中文電台。根據2007年最新市場調查報告Ipsos Reid 2007 Canadian Chinese Media Monitor指出,加拿大中文電台每週聽眾接觸率比另一華語電台高出71%,連續五屆成為大溫最多人收聽的中文電台。這些驕人的收聽調查數字,正好反映出加拿大中文電台絕對是本地廣告客戶的最佳宣傳媒體。

Numbers speak for themselves. According to the 5 significant marketing surveys conducted in 1995, 1998, 2000 and 2005, and 2007, Fairchild Radio has been rated as Vancouver’s most listened to Chinese radio station 5 times in a row.
