Decision CRTC 2001-740

Ottawa, 30 November 2001

Rawlco Communications (Sask.) Ltd.
Regina, Saskatchewan 2001-0748-4

15 October 2001 Public Hearing
in Vancouver

Acquisition of the assets of CKCK by Rawlco

This decision is one of four issued today that restructure the ownership of the commercial radio stations in Regina. An overview of the implications of these decisions is provided in Public Notice CRTC 2001-118 Introductory statement to Decisions CRTC 2001-738 to 2001-741: Restructuring commercial radio in Regina.


The Commission approves the application for authority to acquire the assets of the radio programming undertaking CKCK Regina operating on frequency 980 kHz from HDL Investments Inc. (HDL), and for a broadcasting licence to continue the operation of the undertaking.


The applicant indicated that, following approval of the current application, it would move the call letters and programming of its current AM station CJME to frequency 980 kHz from the station's current frequency 1300 kHz. The Commission notes that in accordance with Decision CRTC 2001-741 issued today, Rawlco will establish a new FM station which will serve to replace CKCK.


Upon surrender of the current licence, the Commission will issue a licence to Rawlco expiring 31 August 2008, the current expiry date. The licence will be subject to the conditions for AM stations set out in Public Notice CRTC 1999-137.


The Commission notes that the applicant did not propose any tangible benefits and that CKCK has been unprofitable over the three years preceding filing of this application. In accordance with its policy for commercial radio, the Commission will forgo benefits requirements for this station.


The Commission notes that this licensee is subject to the Employment Equity Act and therefore files reports concerning employment equity with Human Resources Development Canada.
