Proposal of the Commission - 19 November 2012 Public Hearing

Broadcasting Notice of Consultation CRTC 2011-379

Emerging Artists / Playlist

Proposal of the Commission made to the Corporation on 19 November 2012.

As part of conditions of license (COLs) about emerging artists and the size of the playlist, the Commission needs to ensure that the CBC provide the material that the CRTC will need in order to assess compliance.

First COL:

The first is the COL imposed on Rock 95, the new Toronto station, about emerging artists:

"In order to facilitate verification of compliance with this condition of licence, the licensee must specify on the music lists it provides to the Commission pursuant to section 9(3) of the Regulations:
i) those musical selections it categorizes as being by an emerging Canadian artist; and
ii) for each musical selection so categorized, the additional following information where applicable:

For the purposes of this condition, the terms "broadcast week," "Canadian selection," "content category" and "musical selection" shall have the same meaning as that set out in the Regulations. The term "emerging Canadian artist" shall have the meaning set out in Definition of emerging Canadian artists on commercial radio, Broadcasting Regulatory Policy CRTC 2011-316, 12 May 2011."

Second COL:

"Upon request by the Commission, the licensee shall supply the list referenced in subsection 9. (3) of the Radio Regulations, 1986 in a popular spreadsheet format."

Please comment on these proposed COLs.
