On April 5, Les Communications Matane Inc., owner of CHRM-AM, was given approval to open a new FM station at Matane, operating on 95.3 MHz with an effective radiated power of 12,730 watts. The new station would offer a soft rock format - 20% instrumental - targeted to the 20 to 44 age group. CHRM-AM would move from a contemporary MOR to a more traditional MOR format. A competing application from Power Broadcasting for a rebroadcaster of CIKI-FM Rimouski was denied. Power did proposed to originate 15 hours weekly of local programming though.
