PELLPROPCO INC. Oldies-Italian CHSC-A/ST. CATHARINES, ON has lost its bid to stay on the air after license revocation by the CRTC and has shut down.
The ST. CATHARINES STANDARD reports that the station lost its attempt to further its appeal of the revocation when a federal court denied its filing on THURSDAY. The station's license was revoked for improperly targeting the Italian-speaking TORONTO audience across the lake rather than the local ST. CATHARINES audience and was ordered to close on AUGUST 31st, but the station stayed on under a temporary injunction until this weekend.
The station's Italian-language programming continues online.
