On November 5, Telemedia Ltee, owner of CKCV-AM, received a licence for a new FM station at Quebec City. It would broadcast with an effective radiated power of 39,800 watts, on a frequency of 107.5 MHz. It would have a Middle of the Road music format, emphasizing in-depth news. There were also plans by Telemedia to develop an FM news network. Money would be set aside to broadcast cultural events, and production facilities would be made available to local musicians, free of charge. CJRP-AM (Radio Mutual) was also granted a new FM licence. Both applicants had FM applications turned down in the past.
