CHED is a talk radio station in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, broadcasting at 630 kHz on the AM dial and is owned by Corus Entertainment.

The station originally began broadcasting at 1080 AM in 1954, until it moved to its current frequency in 1965.

Although primarily concerned with talk and news programming, CHED is also the voice of the NHL Edmonton Oilers and CFL Edmonton Eskimos. In the late evenings it re-broadcasts older radio dramas.

Some of the shows include:

  • The Charles Adler Show with Charles Adler - weekdays 1:00 p.m. (Mountain Standard Time)
  • Rutherford with Dave Rutherford - weekdays 9:00 a.m. (MT)
  • The Bryan Hall Show - 3 p.m. (MT)
  • The 630 CHED Afternoon News with Syd Smith, Eileen Bell and Lesley Primeau - 4:30 p.m. (MT)
  • The Lesley Primeau Show - 6 p.m. (MT)
  • Inside Sports with Dan Tencer - weeknights 8:00 p.m. (MT)
  • Those Old Radio Shows hosted by Dan Gavin - weeknights 11:00 p.m. (MT)
  • The Inside Story with Michelle Boden - Mondays 1:00 p.m. (MT)
  • Cop Talk hosted by 2 members of the Edmonton Police Service - Saturday afternoon 4:00 p.m. (MT)

For a significant portion of its history, CHED was Edmonton's (and North America's) most successful Top 40 station having a staggering 40% share of the local listening audience, but with the arrival of FM radio, it lost its listenership and moved to an all-talk format.

CHED is currently the most listened to radio station in Edmonton.[1]
