On September 4, the CRTC approved an application by Radio communautaire de Lévis for a broadcasting licence to operate a French-language Type B community FM radio station in Lévis. Radio communautaire de Lévis is a not-for-profit organization controlled by its board of directors. Radio communautaire de Lévis proposed to operate the station on frequency 96.9 MHz (channel 245A1) with a maximum effective radiated power of 104 watts (maximum ERP of 165 watts with an effective height of the antenna above average terrain of 13.8 metres). The new station would offer 126 hours of local programming in each broadcast week, including 114 hours and 30 minutes of spoken word programming and 11 hours and 30 minutes of news (75% local, 15% national and 10% international). The station's music programming would comprise pop, rock, dance, country and country-oriented, concert, folk, world beat, international and jazz and blues music. The applicant committed to devoting not less than 12% of category 3 musical selections to Canadian selections broadcast in their entirety. The applicant plans to start recruiting volunteers in the station's first weeks of operation by contacting local volunteer organizations. Volunteer hosts of all ages would be required to undertake a complete training course such as that provided by the Collège Radio Télévision de Québec or another institution designated by the licensee. The professionals at the station would also offer training. The licence would expire 31 August 2016.
