A London AM radio station that has been on the air for 60 years is going silent.
CKSL, known to most people as Funny 1410, has been granted permission from Canada's regulatory operator, the CRTC, to go off the air. The current owner Bell Media points to an aging infrastructure for the reason to turn in the licence.
The station that signed on in 1956 was at one time a Top 40 station. Over the years it was re-formatted to be news talk, soft adult contemporary, oldies and was Canada's first radio station devoted to comedy radio.
It's not known exactly when Funny 1410 will sign off.
