Postby radiofan » Fri Apr 28, 2017 11:29 am

Vista Radio was denied its application today to remove the FM Specialty status and all conditions of license associated with Christian station CJLT 93.7 "PRAISE FM" in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Vista had proposed flipping the station to an Alternative Rock format.

Vista stated that the station was unprofitable in its current form and changes must be made to ensure the stations future viability. Clear Sky Radio and the Jim Pattison Broadcast Group filed interventions stating that the proposed format change would have an undue financial impact on the existing stations in the Medicine Hat market. The CRTC agreed.

Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.
