Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2005-57

CICI-TV Sudbury - New transmitter in Huntsville


The Commission approves the application by CTV Television Inc. (CTV) to amend the broadcasting licence for the television programming undertaking CICI-TV Sudbury, in order to operate a transmitter in Huntsville.


The transmitter to be added is CKNY-TV-11, which is currently licensed to CTV as a television programming undertaking serving Huntsville. CTV indicated that CKNY-TV-11 rebroadcasts the programming of CICI-TV, and has ceased to provide separate news programming directed to Huntsville. The applicant expressed the view that it is therefore no longer necessary for it to hold a separate licence for CKNY-TV-11. CTV further indicated that, if this application were approved, the broadcasting licence to operate a separate television programming undertaking at Huntsville should be revoked.


CTV committed to continue to serve the Huntsville community by maintaining locally-based reporting staff in the Huntsville area, and by the on-going inclusion, in the regional newscasts on CICI-TV, of news stories of relevance to Huntsville.


The Commission received one intervention in support of this application.


The new transmitter will continue to operate on channel 11 with an average effective radiated power of 178,900 watts, providing viewers in Huntsville with programming originating from CICI-TV Sudbury. The licensee indicated that no change to the technical parameters of the transmitter will result from approval of this application.


Given the licensee's request noted above, the Commission revokes, pursuant to sections 9(1)(e) and 24(1) of the Broadcasting Act, the broadcasting licence issued to CTV Television Inc. for CKNY-TV-11.
