Language switch proposed for AM station

Montreal, Quebec: 690KHz:
CKGM proposes switch from English to French.

CKGM-990, an English-language all-sports station, recently received approval to move to the better 690KHz frequency.

The station, not yet on 690, now requests permission to operate as a French-language station under the slogan "RDS Radio".  (RDS is a French-language cable TV sports network in Canada)

Such a move requires regulatory approval in Canada; it is by no means certain this approval will be granted.
