CRTC Approves New Saguenay Station
March 22, 2007 at 5:45 AM (PT)
The CRTC has conditionally granted a new FM license for SAGUENAY (ZONE LA BAIE), QC to CARL GILBERT. The new French-language Rock format station will need to find a new frequency, however, as the applied-for 99.9 FM facility conflicts with a rebroadcasting transmitter for CKAJ/SAGUENAY in the ZONE LA BAIE area on 99.7 FM.
The Commission also approved a frequency change for BEAR CREEK BROADCASTING's new GRANDE PRAIRIE, AB station, which will build on 98.9 FM rather than 103.3 FM and will be constructed at a different tower location than originally specified. And the CRTC approved the move of CAMPUS RADIO SAINT JOHN's CFMH/SAINT JOHN, NB from 92.5 to 107.3 FM to alleviate interference.
