Excerpt: CJOY is a Canadian radio station, broadcasting at 1460 AM in Guelph, Ontario. Its sister station is CIMJ-FM. Wally Slatter and Fred Metcalfe opened Guelphs first radio station, CJOY, on June 14, 1948 on 1450 kHz with 250 watts power, non-directional with transmitter using one 150 foot tower in Guelph Township, Wellington County. On April 1, 1960, CJOY moved to 1460 kHz with 10,000 watts day and 5,000 watts night (full-time) from a new site on the south half of a Lot in Puslinch Township, Wellington County.
