Another TV station viable in both Calgary and Edmonton markets, CHUM tells CRTC

Toronto-based CHUM Ltd. argues that not only can the Alberta market support new television stations, but that they would bring much needed diversity and regional programming to the province. The argument is in stark contrast to the company’s contention that the Toronto market couldn’t sustain more entrants during a licensing bid that ended in Craig Broadcast Systems Inc. getting the go-ahead for its toronto/one station (CCR, June 7/02, May 23/02). Now, CHUM is offering a slew of commitments in its bid to get licences for TV stations in Craig’s backyard – Edmonton (with a retransmitter in Red Deer) and Calgary.
