Kitchener CKKW discussion
In a broadcasting decision handed down today, the CRTC has approved the application by CTV Limited (CTV) for a broadcasting licence to operate a new English-language commercial FM radio station in Kitchener, Ontario, to replace its AM station CKKW.
The proposed FM station will continue to broadcast an Oldies music format targeting adults between the ages of 40 and 64. Approximately 124 hours per broadcast week will be devoted to local programming. The station will broadcast seven hours and 50 minutes of spoken word programming per broadcast week, including one hour and 39 minutes of news.
As set out in the appendix to this decision, the licensee is authorized to simulcast the programming of the new FM station on CKKW for a transition period of three months following the commencement of operations of the FM station.
