Since 1984, CIAO-AM 530 (Brampton/Toronto) has given quality programming to countless new Canadians in an assortment of dialects. The station, owned by Evanov Radio Group, broadcasts a multilingual programming format.


The station was launched in 1953 as AM 1090 CFJB, a daytimer owned by broadcaster Fen Job. He was killed in a car crash in 1956, and the station was sold by his estate to CHIC Ltd. in 1959, adopting the new callsign CHIC the following year.

In 1964, CHIC became a full-time broadcaster, moving to AM 790. From 1966 to 1969, it operated as an “all-girl” format using the slogan “CHIC – Where The Girls Are” in which only female announcers appeared as deejays.

The station adopted its current callsign in 1987 and moved to its current frequency in 1991 after CJFT in Fort Erie converted to the FM band.
