No new radio stations for Cochrane or Iroquois Falls, says CRTC

OTTAWA – The CRTC will not license any new radio stations in the northern Ontario markets of Cochrane and Iroquois Falls. After receiving applications for broadcasting licences in the two communities, the Commission called for comments and conducted a financial review of the incumbent radio stations. Based on the comments it received and its own analysis, the CRTC determined that these radio markets of do not have the capacity to support new commercial radio stations at this time, and said that it will not accept applications for those markets for the next two years.
