On October 27, the CRTC approved an application by Radio coopérative de Coaticook, Coop de solidarité for a broadcasting licence to operate a French-language Type B community FM radio station in Coaticook. It would operate at 96.7 MHz (channel 244B1) with an average effective radiated power (ERP) of 1,250 watts (maximum ERP of 2,400 watts with an effective height of the antenna above average terrain of 213.1 metres). The applicant indicated that the station would broadcast 102 hours of programming each broadcast week. A Type B community radio station may not increase or decrease its total weekly broadcast time by more than 20% without prior approval. It would offer musical programming consisting primarily of selections drawn from subcategory 24 (Easy listening). The station's spoken word programming would include news bulletins, public affairs and community programs, and cultural affairs and leisure programs. The applicant committed to devote at least 10% of its news reports to local news, 60% to regional news and 30% to national and international news each broadcast week. The licence would expire August 31, 2016.
