CJLF Sheds Commercial Caps

TRUST COMMUNICATIONS MINISTRIES Contemporary Christian CJLF (LIFE 100.3)/BARRIE, ON has received CRTC approval to delete the condition of its license restricting it to no more than six minutes of commercials per hour during morning and afternoon drive and four minutes per hour in other dayparts.
The station complained that the restrictions were especially onerous because carrying SKYWORDS traffic reports pre-packaged with commercial tags counted against the limit even though the station did not receive revenue from the tags. CJLF will have to increase its commitment to Canadian talent development by $2,000 as part of the lifting of the commercial restrictions.
