CJVB is a radio station in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada which broadcasts multilingual programming at AM 1470. Owned by the Fairchild Group, the station broadcasts on 1470 kHz with a power of 50,000 watts, using two different directional patterns for daytime and nighttime operation. CJVB's studios and transmitter are located in Richmond. Operation began as a 10,000 watt station at the same transmitter site in 1972, with the power increase to 50 kW in 1980.[1] The station was originally licensed to Jan van Bruchem, whose initials give CJVB its call letters. CJVB was the third multicultural radio station in Canada, following CHIN in Toronto and CFMB in Montreal. It was also the first radio station in BC to broadcast in AM stereo.
