CJRT & New Ajax Station: Two Rulings From The CRTC Coming This Week

It's been more than six months since CJRT applied to the CRTC during a previous licence renewal hearing to increase the amount of advertising it's allowed to broadcast. It's currently at 504 minutes a week. It wants to up the number to more than double that, at 1,200. The ruling is due in the coming week. 

And then there's another decision that looks even more significant. The Commission will reveal the results of a call for comments on whetherAjax/Pickering has room for another radio station. More than a year ago, the CRTC received an application for - what else - yet another ethnic station planned for 91.7 FM, with a maximum power of 2,000 watts. 

Being so close to Toronto - and the multitude of ethnic stations already on the air here - it should be revealing what conclusion they come to. 

Stay tuned. More to come.
