Since the 1970s, the Chetwynd Communications Society has worked to establish radio and television service. For many years, they rebroadcast pre-recorded content to Chetwynd and surrounding communities via a telecommunications tower on nearby Wabi Hill.
As a result, the Chetwynd Communications Society operates a series of low-powered repeaters that rebroadcast selected Canadian and American stations via satellite (a complete list of these stations is below).
On 5 December 1996, 94.5 CHET-FM—the town’s first radio station—went on-air. Since then the station has expanded with a repeater tower in Dawson Creek at 104.1 and is now known collectively as Peace FM. Its programming uses a series of specialty programs such as metal, gospel, hard rock, and dance.
Chetwynd’s community television station, CHET-DT channel 28.1, began broadcasting on 8 March 2000, in a ceremony attended by Governor General Adrienne Clarkson.
