1994 - 2001
This was the downfall of LG73 and really isn't worth mentioning since all the good talent had left. Certain individuals, who gained too much authority in the station ranks, thought it would be good to turn LG73 into a talk radio station. This failed and put the final stake into the heart of the station. Of course, those same individuals left the station after that, and a few good people rose from the ashes, and tried to turn the station around by playing music once again. Although the station played a good format, with songs you still didn't hear on FM, the ratings would never climb. The faithful listeners had given up.

On February 1, after being on autopilot for months, LG73 became All-News "NW2" CJNW.

Word on the street, is that Corus has been doing some dealing, and in the very near future, Corus' highly unsuccessful All News NW2 730 will be changing formats. The likely format for CJNW would be Oldies, or possibly Jammin’ Oldies, like sister station COOL 880 in Edmonton. We may even see a return of the CKLG call letters that were abandoned on Feb. 1, 2001 when CJNW was launched.

(July 11, 2002 – Vancouver, Canada) Men of Vancouver - brace yourselves for a shot of testosterone. Corus Entertainment Inc. announced today a format change for its Vancouver radio station CJNW AM 730. The format will be MOJO Radio, the All New AM 730 talk radio station for guys that will hit the airwaves on August 6.

MOJO Radio, geared to males aged 25 – 54, provides a forum for men to discuss and debate issues that matter to them, from health and fitness to cars, careers, beers, business, women and sports. The only Vancouver talk radio station exclusively for guys, MOJO Radio will be both inventive and irreverent. This format has proven to be both a ratings and audience winner in Toronto where MOJO’s share of tuning has increased by 21%* since the format was introduced, and in that time circulation has increased 18.9% making it Toronto’s fastest growing radio station.

Ok give me a break! These guys have no idea what they are doing! This format was already tried on this frequency before, and failed. Now they want to try it again! All I can say is this is the MOST stupid thing they could have done.

As everyone knows, MOJO failed badly and Corus flipped the station again, and this time it became Traffic 730 - All Traffic, All The Time!
