At the CRTC

  • The broadcasting side is pretty quiet while the commission focuses on the review of its Wireless Code this week.
  • The commission has approved a new FM transmitter for ICI Radio-Canada Première in Sarnia, Ont.
  • The commission has approved the transfer of ownership of Serdy Média (owner of the Évasion and Zeste specialty channels) from Serge Arsenault to his son Sébastien Arsenault.
  • Community radio station CHGA-FM Maniwaki has applied to increase its power as the antenna tower undergoes major maintenance. The new signal would be 16.9kW, up from 2.877kW. It says the increase is necessary to compensate for hilly terrain in the area.

    Good stuff..
    Have you heard anything about staff poaching or even high powered salespeople out there going after sponsors.? Studio site?

    So far a website with nothing on it and programmed music can all be done from a back office.

    And any news Steve about AM600 extension from CRTC?

    Just curious. Does Martin Patriquin have a current gig, after being let go by Macleans magazine as their Quebec Bureau Chief? Now he’s introduced as a journalist & political commentator, when still making appearances on television in past week.
