Pendant de nombreuses années, Shaw Cablesystems gérait avec succès ses divers systèmes de câblodistribution. Le 27 août 1987, en faisant l’acquisition de deux stations situées à Red Deer (Alberta), CIZZ-FM et CKGY-FM, Shaw (qui deviendra plus tard Corus Entertainment) effectuait son entrée en scène en tant que titulaire de licences d’entreprises de radiodiffusion en direct. Au cours de cette même période, Shaw effectuait d’autres acquisitions, dont celles de CISN-FM Edmonton (1988), CHAY-FM Barrie (1990), CKCK-FM Woodstock (1991) et CFOX-FM et CKLG-AM Vancouver (1992).

The development of the new receiver had been financed by Edward's father Albert's holding company, Standard Radio Manufacturing Corporation Ltd. (Standard).
