Application for new AM station dismissed
Ottawa, Ontario: 1630KHz: Application for new station dismissed. This was to be an ethnic station, but nearly 99% of the schedule would have been in Arabic. Generally, Canadian ethnic stations are required to serve a variety of ethnic groups. Also, it was felt the station would have a serious negative impact on CJLL-FM, which makes a significant amount of its revenue on Arabic-language programs.
