In a broadcasting decision handed down this week, the CRTC has approved an application to add a digital transmitter for CJMT-TV to serve London Ontario.

CJMT-TV, which is owned by Rogers Media, broadcasts multicultural programming out of Toronto. It uses the on-air brand OMNI.2, and is a sister station to CFMT (OMNI.1).

OMNI.2 airs programming in the South Asian languages (e.g., Urdu, Hindi), as well as in Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese, Korean, Somali, and Afghan.

The new transmitter will operate on channel 20 with an average effective radiated power (ERP) of 10,600 watts (maximum ERP of 14,000 watts with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of 197.6 metres).
