New Canadian to be on 1670 AM
A new FF AM station in Gatineau Quebec/Ottawa ON on 1670 (1kW) has been approved by the CRTC:
“Community radio station in Gatineau/Ottawa:
The Commission approves the application by Fondation Radio Enfant du Canada, on behalf of a company to be incorporated, for a broadcasting licence to operate a French-language, Type B community AM radio programming undertaking in Gatineau and Ottawa. The station will operate day and night at 1670 kHz with an effective radiated power of 1,000 watts.
During each broadcast week, the station will broadcast 126 hours of programming, at least 120 hours of which will be produced by the station. The rest (i.e. at most 6 hours) will be used by the station for broadcasting children’s programs produced outside its territory. These programs will be aimed at enriching the programming and encouraging discussion among young people.
The applicant stated that the new station’s programming will target children from 4 to 18
years of age. The programming will be by and for young people and will reflect specific educational objectives drawn from school programs.”
