CHML is a Canadian radio station, broadcasting at 900 AM in Hamilton, Ontario. The station airs a news/talk format branded as AM 900. CHML is owned by Corus Entertainment.


CHML began operations in 1927 as a response to censorship of political discussions by Hamilton's first radio station, CKOC. The original owners were Maple Leaf Radio Company, and the "HML" in the callsign stood for "Hamilton Maple Leaf". Broadcaster Ken Soble took over CHML in 1944.cite press release| title =The Hamilton Memory Project;| publisher =The Hamilton Spectator- Souvenir Edition| date =Saturday June 10, 2006| accessdate = 2007-01-29] Shortly after Soble's death, his estate sold the station to Western Broadcasting, later known as Western International Communications. Corus took over Western's radio assets in 1999.
