Blind River and Espanola, Ontario - 851953000 - 851952200
Pursuant to Public Notice CRTC 1986-14 dated 20 January 1986, the Commission approves the applications to amend the broadcasting licences for CJNR Blind River and CKNS Espanola, by deleting the condition of licence which requires each of these stations to operate as an affiliate of the CBC English-language AM Radio Network service.
This disaffiliation will result in a decrease in programming from the News and Backgrounding categories broadcast on CJNR and CKNS. This should be offset by an increase in the amount of Music-General.
The Commission notes that the CBC English-language radio network service will continue to be available to Blind River and Espanola residents through CBCE-FM Little Current, on frequency 97.5 MHz (channel 248).
