Move To FM Complete, Two Corus AMs Go Silent
May 4, 2009 at 5:27 AM (PT)
CORUS French Classic Hits CJRC-A/GATINEAU-OTTAWA has been taken silent, a little more than two years after moving to FM. CJRC-F launched on 104.7 FM on APRIL 16, 2007, and the AM finally went dark as required by the CRTC on FRIDAY (5/1). CJRC flipped from French Talk to its present "SOUVENIRS GARANTIS" format at the end of MARCH. The AM signal launched in 1968.
The company also took CHLT-A/SHERBROOKE, QC off the air on FRIDAY; the station, which airs the same "SOUVENIRS GARANTIS" format as CJRC, moved to FM on AUGUST 20, 2007 and changed frequencies from 102.1 to 107.7 FM on JULY 30, 2008. CHLT had aired on AM since 1937.
