I haven't heard HOT 89-9 identify themselves as "HD" in at least 3 years...They might not *actually* be in HD. HOT 89.9 in Ottawa says the same thing, but they're just capitalizing on the buzzword. With that audience, just telling them it sounds better will make them believe it does.
Looks like they're already on the air. Very weak signal meant for downtown only, I did manage to catch it a little around the airport but comes in and out at that distance.We are thrilled to announce that the CRTC has approved our application to operate a nested FM transmitter in downtown Toronto!
You can expect to hear the same “Best of The Best” AM 740 programming that you know and love on our new 96.7 FM frequency. This FM frequency will give us an improved reception in the downtown Toronto area like you’ve never heard before.
We aim to launch this new station by Fall/2015. Stay tuned for more information!
