A big congratulations to our friends over at CJAM radio. As posted on the CJAM website:

Today the CRTC approved the application for CJAM FM to move its broadcasting undertaking from 91.5FM to 99.1FM. With this move CJAM will be officially designated as a Full Power ‘Class A’ radio station, with ‘protected status’. This designation is critical for community radio stations like CJAM as it prevents other broadcasters from applying for its signal. This past fall CJAM faced this very threat when the CBC applied to move CBC Radio One to the FM dial at 91.5. The application was eventually withdrawn, but an American applicant for 91.5 was approved by the FCC, necessitating the move to a new frequency.

This is an historic day for CJAM and for the legacy of community radio in Windsor and Detroit, as CJAM will finally gain the long-term security it has deserved for so long. Thanks to the Commission for upholding the Broadcasting Act of Canada, and thanks to CJAM’s community of listeners, programmers and volunteers for sending letters to the CRTC in support of the application.

CJAM is now proceeding with technical changes necessary for the change in signal. More details on when CJAM will be changing frequencies will be made available soon.
