CFJC has been a CBC affiliate since
operations began on April 8, 1957. It was bought by the Jim
Pattison Group in 1987. As an affiliate, it broadcast some but not
all of the CBC television network.
CBC also argued that it was too expensive to build television transmitters for such a small market but apparently the same logic didn't apply in much smaller markets in which transmitters were being built to replace service similarly lost when CHBC disaffiliated.
In August of 2007, CBC decided to expand Kelowna's radio studio instead of building a studio in Kamloops. CBC says that Kamloops hasn't been forgotten but actions speak louder than words.
Who watches TV over-the-air?
Canadian Media Research survey prepared for CRTC in September 2006 that
shows how many Canadians get television signals over-the-air (OTA).
Their findings show that more CBC viewers depend on over-the-air television
than non-CBC viewers. All OTA viewers amount to about 10% of viewers
whereas whereas 16% of CBC viewers depend on OTA TV.
