Ottawa, 16 January 1996
Decision CRTC 96-7
Rogers Broadcasting Limited
Victoria, British Columbia - 952221000
Licence amendment for CIOC-FM
Following Public Notice CRTC 1995-181 dated 25 October 1995, the Commission approves the application to amend the Promise of Performance for CIOC-FM (formerly CFMS-FM) Victoria, by reducing the level of instrumental music selections broadcast each week from "at least 35% to less than 50%" to "less than 35%".
The Commission notes that, in accordance with the Radio Regulations, 1986, the minimum amount of Canadian content in popular music that must be broadcast by CIOC-FM on a weekly basis following this approval will increase from 20% to 30%.
The Commission also notes that this approval is consistent with Public Notice CRTC 1990-11 and will provide the licensee with the flexibility to program a more contemporary soft vocal sound.
The Commission acknowledges the intervention submitted regarding this application and is satisfied with the licensee's reply thereto.
Allan J. Darling
Secretary General
