CKJS Winnipeg – Administrative renewal

  1. The Commission renews the broadcasting licence for the ethnic commercial AM radio programming undertaking CKJS Winnipeg, Manitoba, from 1 September 2018 to 31 August 2019, subject to the same terms and conditions as those in effect under the current licence.
  2. This decision follows from CKJS Winnipeg – Conversion to the FM band, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2017-423, 30 November 2017 (Broadcasting Decision 2017-423), wherein the Commission approved the licensee’s application for a new broadcasting licence for an ethnic commercial specialty FM radio station in Winnipeg to replace CKJS. As stated in the appendix to that decision, the licensee is authorized to simulcast the programming of the new FM station on CKJS for a transition period of three months following the commencement of operations of the FM station. In Broadcasting Decision 2017-423, pursuant to sections 9(1)(e) and 24(1) of the Broadcasting Act and consistent with the licensee’s request, the licence for CKJS Winnipeg will be revoked at the end of the simulcast period.
  3. According to Commission records, the new FM station has not yet commenced operations. As noted in the appendix to Broadcasting Decision 2017-423, the Commission reminds the licensee that the new FM station must be operational at the earliest possible date and in any event no later than 30 November 2019, unless a request for an extension of time is approved by the Commission before then. In order to ensure that such a request is processed in a timely manner, it should be submitted at least 60 days before this date.
