AM 740 Prime Time Radio is CHWO-AM out of Toronto, occupying the former CBC 
AM frequency in Toronto.

Further information available at:


Canadian stations are SUPPOSED to legally ID at the top of the air.  Some, like 
Montreal's CINW 940, often "forget" to do such, although 940's "forgetfulness" has 
recently been rectified with the recent appointment of John Hayes, he of WNBC fame, 
who issued the directives to Kevin Metheny to state "W-NNNN-B-C" as often as 
possible, as President of Corus Entertainment's radio properties.
