CJDC is a Canadian radio station, broadcasting at 890 AM in Dawson Creek, British Columbia. The station, owned by Bell Media, airs a country music format. CJDC broadcasts with a power of 10,000 watts day and night and uses a non-directional antenna daytime, and a two-tower directional antenna nighttime, to protect Class-A clear-channel stations KBBI Homer, Alaska and WLS Chicago.
The station was launched in 1947 by local broadcaster Radio Station CJDC (Dawson Creek, B.C.) Ltd. as an affiliate of the CBC's Trans-Canada Network, broadcasting on AM 1350. In 1959, the company also launched CJDC-TV, a CBC Television affiliate, and changed its corporate name to CJDC Ltd. At a later date, the corporate name was changed to Mega Communications.
The stations were sold to Okanagan Skeena Broadcasters in 1997, to Telemedia in 1999. Telemedia was later taken over by Standard Radio in 2002, and most of Standard's assets, including the CJDC stations, were in turn acquired by Astral in 2007, and were again acquired by Bell Media in 2013.
