CRTC approves new Montreal radio stations

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission has approved two new AM radio stations for the Montreal market. Tietolman has been granted a licence to use frequency 940 kHz, while Evanov has been granted a licence to use frequency 990 kHz. Tietolman will operate a French-language station focusing on news and public affairs, aimed at listeners over the age of 35. Evanov will offer a French-language spoken word and musical station aimed at the Montreal lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual community. Evanov operates a similar station in Toronto. "We are pleased to be increasing the diversity of voices in Montreal's radio market by offering additional choices to listeners," said Tom Pentefountas, vice-chairman of the CRTC. "The commission received high quality proposals, but was unfortunately unable to approve all of them." The commission has also approved an application from Bell Media for a frequency change for its TSN radio station from 990 kHz to 690 kHz.
