CKRW Whitehorse – Licence amendment
- The Commission approves the application by Klondike Broadcasting Company Limited to amend the broadcasting licence for the English-language commercial AM radio programming undertaking CKRW Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, in order to authorize the station to originate programming from its rebroadcasting transmitter CKRW-FM Whitehorse under its existing technical parameters until 5 April 2018. Any request for an extension to this authorization must be submitted in writing at least 60 days before that date. The Commission did not receive any interventions regarding this application.
- The licensee explained that the structural integrity of the existing tower for CKRW has been compromised and poses a potential safety risk. As a result, it intends to remove the tower and submit an application to operate CKRW-FM as an originating station on a permanent basis. The temporary authorization granted in this decision will allow the service to remain on air until the licensee can file this application for the Commission’s consideration.
This decision is to be appended to the licence.
