From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

EZ Rock is a brand of adult contemporary music radio stations heard primarily in Canada. The branding was originally created by Telemedia in the mid-1990s for its adult contemporary stations, and based on the call sign of its former Toronto flagship CJEZ (now CJBM).

Telemedia was later acquired by Standard Broadcasting in 2002, and Standard in turn was acquired by Astral Media in 2007. The branding has also been retained to date on four Telemedia stations that Standard sold to Rogers Communications shortly after completing the 2002 takeover.

The stations are generally programmed independently, although special Canadian content versions of shows such as Delilah and the John Tesh Radio Show are heard across the network. Some stations in smaller markets may also share voice-tracked programming in weekend and overnight slots.

Despite the pronunciation of the letter "Z" as "zed" in Canadian English, the name is pronounced "E-Zee Rock" (as in "Easy Rock"), not "E-Zed Rock".
