La Co-opérative Radio Richmond limitée

On March 15, the CRTC approved an application by La Co-opérative Radio Richmond limitée for a broadcasting licence to operate a French-language Type A community radio station in Petit-de-Grat. The station would operate at 104.1 MHz (channel 281A) with an effective radiated power of 5,200 watts. It would air 126 hours of programming in each broadcast week with a minimum of 31 hours devoted to locally produced programming. The applicant would also offer programs originating from CKJM-FM Chéticamp, Nova Scotia, a Type A community radio station. The station's mandate would be to broadcast, among other programs, public service announcements, weather reports, community news, local, regional, national and international information, sports reports, arts and cultural information and any other type of spoken-word programming that would be consistent with the Co-opérative's goals and objectives. With respect to musical content, the applicant indicated that the new station would give priority to programming that featured local artists. The station's musical programming would include a variety of musical styles, such as Acadian, country and western, retro, rock, pop, folk, Cajun, disco, jazz, classical and world music. The licence would expire August 31, 2012.


The originally assigned or chosen call letters, CIZO-FM, were changed to CITU-FM.


CITU-FM signed on the air. Studios and offices were at 3435 Route 206, and the transmitter was on top of a former dump in Isle Madame.
