In two broadcasting decisions handed down yesterday, the CRTC has approved applications for new FM radio stations in Estevan and Humboldt Saskatchewan.

In Estevan, the commission approved a new English-language commercial FM radio station which would operate on frequency 106.1 MHz with an effective radiated power of 100,000 watts. The new station will offer a Classic Rock and New Rock music format with 126 hours of local programming per broadcast week, including five hours and 45 minutes of news.

Local programming would include regular local news casts, weather, sports and surveillance material, as well as the promotion of local concerts, the arts community, and all community and business organizations.

In Humboldt, the federal regulator approved an English-language commercial FM radio station which would operate on frequency 107.5 MHz . Forty percent of the programming would be hits music catering to adults 18 to 54 years of age. The proposed service’s programming would also include just under 14 hours a week of spoken word programming per broadcast week, which would consist of news, weather, sports, surveillance material, and local agricultural and farm news. Additionally, the service would provide promotion of local concerts, the local arts community and other community organizations.
