Primary Jack FM logo
Primary Jack FM logo

"Jack FM" is the moniker and on-air brand of several radio stations in Canada and the United States. Jack stations play a mix of 1970s, 1980s and 1990s hits with some current hot adult contemporary singles. Jack stations use the slogan "playing what we want", and promote themselves as having a larger and more varied playlist than other commercial radio stations. It is not unusual for a Jack-FM station to have a playlist of over 1000 songs compared to a normal FM station which sometimes have play lists of less than 100 songs. The stations are officially classified as the Variety Hits or Adult Hits format by radio research companies, but has also been referred to unofficially as random radio or an "iPod shuffle" format. Some dispute the "iPod shuffle" characterization, since that is a personalized listening experience, whereas Jack is a hit-based format designed to appeal to the Adult 25-54 demographic, aiming specifically at 35-44 year olds.

Beginning in 2002, the format was adopted on Canadian radio stations owned by Rogers Communications. The first Jack station was Vancouver's CKLG, which quickly shot to the top of the city's BBM radio ratings. The format was consequently adopted on other Rogers stations in 2002 and 2003. The format proved popular in many markets where it was introduced, although its success was not always as dramatic as it had been in Vancouver.

As well as Perry's creation, it was inspired by the success of CHUM Limited's "Bob FM" brand on CFWM radio in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Other Canadian broadcasters copied the concept as well, adopting such brands as Corus Entertainment's "Dave FM" and "Joe FM".

In 2004, American radio stations began to adopt the Jack/Bob/Dave format as well.

On Wednesday, May 4, 2005, at noon, WQSR, an oldies station in Towson, Maryland which targeted Baltimore area listeners, changed its format from oldies to Jack FM. Listeners and staffers alike were surprised by the sudden change and more than one listener didn't realize it was a legitimate change and thought the station signal has been hi-"Jacked" by pranksters. Many in Baltimore were surprised, and in some instances appalled, by the manner in which the format was changed as well the change itself. Many long time DJ's and on-air personalities were considered almost a Baltimore tradition. WQSR received a large amount of negative publicity regarding their format change; however, WQSR's change received nowhere near as much publicity as did the format change of one of New York City's most legendary radio stations.

On Friday, June 3, 2005, at 5:00 PM EDT, WCBS-FM, the oldies station in New York City, switched to Jack FM without any prior warning. The switch to a more generic format has been termed "the day the music died" by New Yorkers and has drawn criticism even from non-listeners of the station, particularly due to the sudden firing of DJ's of historic reknown. In a partial nod to this controversy, on June 14th it was announced that the station would be unique among those with the Jack format in that it would occasionally include 50's and 60's songs in its rotation as well as songs by performers like Frank Sinatra that are normally not part of the Jack format, though a later Web update retracted this and it seems that songs from before the late 1960's are no longer played. While this does not mean that it will be the least successful of the Jack FM stations, it definitely generated the most negative publicity of any market that switched a station to the Jack format, including a derogatory comment by the mayor himself.

On the same day that WCBS-FM made the switch, 104.3 WJMK, an oldies station in Chicago, Illinois, changed format to 104.3 Jack FM as well.

Stations using the "Jack" name are very strictly licensed by the format's owner, Big Sticks Broadcasting. There are several terms that the station must agree to, one of them being the fact that disc jockeys are not to be used for at least the first few months of the format, among other things. Big Sticks has also been very protective of its format, filing suit against Bonneville International for its use of the Jack FM "playing what we want" trademark. For this reason many stations using a Jack-like format use slightly different slogans to avoid infringing Big Sticks' service marks: BEN in Philadelphia uses the tagline "playing anything we feel like", for instance. The majority of the Jack FM stations in the United States are owned by Infinity Broadcasting.

On July 5, 2005, it was announced that Bohn & Associates Media and Wall Media formed SparkNet Communications L.P. as the exclusive U.S. licensor and owner of the Jack FM format. SparkNet has, in turn, licensed the format to ABC Radio Networks for satellite-based syndication to stations in U.S. markets outside the 40 largest.


One of the main criticisms of the Jack-FM format has been that with the elimination (or at least reduction) of the role of the DJ, radio is losing its main selling point over an iPod, which is the sense that a live person is programming your music. Newsday described the format, with a lack of local programming and personalities, as "another step toward the McDonaldization of radio". Newsday is a daily tabloid newspaper which primarily serves Long Island and the New York City borough of Queens, although it is sold throughout the greater New York City metropolitan area. ...
