For a significant portion of it's history, CHED was Edmonton's (& 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 it's listenership & moved to an all-talk format.
CHED is currently the most listened to radio station in Edmonton.
