On June 23, the CRTC approved the application by My Broadcasting Corporation for a broadcasting licence to operate an English-language commercial FM radio programming undertaking in Gananoque. My Broadcasting was a corporation controlled by Jon Pole and Andrew Dickson. The new station would operate at 99.9 MHz (channel 260B1) with an average effective radiated power of 1,490 watts. It would be the first commercial station to serve Gananoque and would offer a blend of Country, Gold/Oldies and Adult Contemporary music selections. The local programming would include approximately 14 hours of spoken word programming, of which approximately 5 hours would be devoted to news. Newscasts would primarily feature local news. The new station would also feature weather, sports and community events. My Broadcasting further committed to devote, by condition of licence, at least 38% of all category 2 (Popular Music) musical selections broadcast during each broadcast week and between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. from Monday to Friday to Canadian selections broadcast in their entirety. The licence would expire August 31, 2016.
