CRTC OKs Move For New Montreal AM
November 30, 2012 at 4:47 PM (PT)
The CRTC has approved 7954689 CANADA INC.'s application to move the transmitter of its new French-language AM News-Talk station at 940 AM in MONTREAL from SAINT-CONSTANT, QC to a new site in KAHNAWAKE, QC. The move was made for technical reasons and does not appreciably change coverage of the facility. The licensee is a partnership of RAJIV PANCHOLY, PAUL TIETOLMAN, and NICOLAS TETRAULT and is also building a new English-language station at 600 AM in MONTREAL.
MASS-MEDIA CAPITALE INC. got mixed news from the CRTC, getting approved for a power increase for its low-power English-language Travelers' Information CJNG/QUEBEC CITY from 100 to 1,000 watts maximum ERP and height increase from 72.6 to 132.9 meters, but getting rejected for a format change to allow "the broadcast of events and performances taking place in the QUEBEC region, such as shows produced as part of festivals and popular events in entertainment facilities, restaurants and bars."
And it was nothing but rejection for NORTHERN NATIVE BROADCASTING, which saw its application to add a transmitter for its Type B Native CFNR/TERRACE, BC at PRINCE RUPERT, BC denied.
