CJDJ-FM Saskatoon - Licence renewal and amendment


The Commission renews the broadcasting licence for CJDJ-FM Saskatoon from 1 December 2002 to 31 August 2009 subject to the conditions set out in New licence form for commercial radio stations, Public Notice CRTC 1999-137, 24 August 1999.


No intervention was filed in connection with this application.


As part of its licence renewal application, 614546 Saskatchewan Ltd. (614546) requested the deletion of the condition of licence requiring that CJDJ-FM air a minimum of 115 hours of local programming in each broadcast week. 614546 maintained that CJDJ-FM should have the same flexibility as other FM stations, which are generally required to broadcast a minimum of 42 hours of local programming weekly. 614546 argued that its approach has always been "to far exceed the minimum required local programming".


The Commission agrees that the licences has demonstrated that it is a responsible broadcaster and considers that 614546's request is reasonable. Accordingly, the Commission approves the request to amend the licence for CJDJ-FM in order to delete the condition of licence requiring the licensee to broadcast a minimum of 115 hours of local programming each broadcast week.


Because this licensee is subject to the Employment Equity Act and files reports with Human Resources Development Canada, its employment equity practices are not examined by the Commission.
