For those who long for the ‘good old days’ of big bands, comedy and drama, starlight serenades, Peggy Lee, Anne Murray, Eddie Fisher, the Supremes, Elvis, Bing Crosby, etc. – AM740 is where it’s at. This station, which occupies a former CBC frequency, has a huge broadcast footprint – from Southern Ontario deep into the United States – and it owns one of the largest music libraries anywhere.
Moses Znaimer, Canadian broadcast innovator, is the owner of CFZM and several other radio and television stations. Formerly with CITYtv and its affiliated youth-oriented cable channels, Mr. Znaimer is now focusing his attention on “Zoomers” – that is, “Boomers” who believe in living life to the max. This is reflected in all of AM740’s programming.
Moses Znaimer: “People today are not aging the way they did 20, 40, 60 years ago. We’re not aging the way our parents did and we’re certainly not aging the way our grandparents did.”
