The CRTC announced today that it had approved applications for new radio stations in Edmonton and Red Deer Alberta.

In Red Deer, Harvard Broadcasting Inc. was given a licence to operate a new Mainstream Adult Contemporary FM radio station targeted to adults between the ages of 25 and 54 in Red Deer. Harvard stated that its station’s format would consist of music from a broad range of artists and include more classic hits from older eras (early 70’s, 80’s and early 90’s).

Harvard’s proposed station would also provide significant local reflection and add to the diversity of news voices in Red Deer by introducing a new radio news voice to the market. All of the programming would be local and live-to-air. In each broadcast week, 16 hours and 21 minutes would be devoted to spoken word programming, including 3 hours and 45 minutes of pure news (80% local), 1 hour and 15 minutes of weather and traffic, 1 hour and 15 minutes of sports, and 8 hours and 24 minutes of announcer talk.
