In Introduction to Broadcasting Decisions CRTC 2004-133 to 2004-137 - Licensing of new FM radio stations to serve Edmonton, Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2004-23, (Public Notice 2004-23), published today, the Commission concluded that the Edmonton radio market would be able to absorb, without any undue negative consequence, the introduction of the Native Type B FM service proposed by Aboriginal Voices Radio Inc. (AVR), in addition to as many as three new commercial, music-based FM radio services, without affecting unduly the ability of existing services to meet their programming responsibilities. In Broadcasting Decisions CRTC 2004-133 to 2004-136 published today, for the reasons set out therein, the Commission announces its approval of the applications by each of CHUM Limited/Milestone Media Broadcasting Ltd., partners in a partnership to be established, O.K. Radio Group Ltd., Rawlco (Edmonton) Ltd. and AVR for a broadcasting licence to carry on a new FM radio programming undertaking at Edmonton.
