contemporary because of WDVD & CHYR-FM having the format and gave Detroit three hot AC stations; the first since 2006 (2006 in radio) when CHUM Limited exited the hot adult contemporary format on CIDR-FM in favour of adult album alternative. That station is owned by Bell Media as of 2011. However, although the station now programs its current hits from the Hot AC rather than Mainstream AC chart, the station still plays a sprinkling of '80s hits (including ballads such as Phil Collins' ''Against All Odds (Take a Look at Me Now)'', which puts the station on the line between mainstream and hot AC. When WNIC goes all-Christmas, the station is delisted temporarily from Mediabase's hot AC panel. Mediabase Hot AC Stations Reported thumb right 250px WNIC station vehicle (File:WNIC station vehicle Farmington Hills Michigan.JPG) By 2010 (2010 in radio), most of the playlist at CKSY-FM would resemble an adult top 40 station, similar to its CHYR-FM sister station in Leamington, Ontario, but continues to stick with the adult contemporary realm because of adult top 40 being the official format of CHYR. CKSY could be considered a very bright AC bordering on adult top 40 since it has stopped playing or reduced airplay of such mainstream AC staple artists as Elton John, Rod Stewart, and Celine Dion. '''CKUE-FM''' is the callsign for a radio station located in Chatham-Kent, Ontario, with a booster station ('''CKUE-FM-1''') in Windsor (Windsor, Ontario), and an office in Leamington (Leamington, Ontario). Dubbing itself "Canada's Rock Station", the station features an active rock format. Country 92.9 & AM 630 On March 3, 2008 at 9AM, after sixteen years as an oldies station, "Classic Gold 630" came to an end with the song "The Beat Goes On" by Sonny and Cher, after which CFCO signed on the new country format with "Play Something Country" by Brooks & Dunn. Opening the station was thirty two year CFCO vet George Brooks. This is the first time Chatham-Kent has had its own country music station, although now-sister station CHYR in nearby Leamington (Leamington, Ontario) was a country station for most of the 1990s and sister station CJSP, also in Leamington, debuted its own country format prior to CFCO's change. Besides CFCO and CJSP, other country stations owned by Blackburn Radio are CHOK in Sarnia-Lambton (Sarnia), CJWF-FM in Windsor, and CKNX (CKNX (AM)) in Wingham (Wingham, Ontario). Out-of-market coverage Over the air, WJW-TV can be easily received in neighboring areas such as Toledo (Toledo, Ohio) and Youngstown, Ohio; Erie, Pennsylvania; and as far north as Kingsville (Kingsville, Ontario), Pelee Island, and Leamington, Ontario. When atmospheric conditions are right, WJW's signal can be picked up as far as Detroit and Windsor, Ontario; during the 2003 North America Blackout, Detroit-area viewers were able to tune in WJW's analog signal, when the blackout silenced adjacent WXYZ-TV (channel 7) and Windsor's CBET (channel 9). "Lite Rock" and The "River's" Return In 2000 (2000 in radio), the station flipped to an adult contemporary format as '''Lite Rock 93-9 FM''' in an attempt to take on AC market leader WNIC. Ratings remained low, and eventually CIDR tweaked its format in a hot adult contemporary direction by 2001 (2001 in radio), when WMGC (WMGC-FM) entered the Detroit AC competition. By the mid-2000s (decade), the station dropped the "Lite Rock" identity from its on-air imaging and became known as simply '''93.9 FM, Today's Best Music'''. The station now competed chiefly with WDVD 96.3 (the former WHYT) & Leamington, Ontario's CHYR-FM for the hot AC audience, but in this, it was still unsuccessful. '''CHYR-FM''' is a Canadian (Canada) radio station, which airs at 96.7 FM (FM radio) in Leamington, Ontario. The station airs a hot adult contemporary format branded as '''Mix 96.7'''. * Kitchener (Kitchener, Ontario) - CKGL (CKGL (AM)), CHYM (CHYM-FM) * Leamington (Leamington, Ontario) - CHYR (CHYR-FM) * Moncton - CKCW (CKCW-FM), CFQM (CFQM-FM) - Leamington Airport CLM2 Leamington (Leamington, Ontario), Ontario - The station also has a rebroadcast transmitter ('''CBEF-1-FM''') in Leamington (Leamington, Ontario), on 103.1 FM (FM radio).

The transmitter must also be operational by May 9, 2010, unless otherwise authorised to be extended.
