The CRTC approved a new Mississauga-based AM radio station Tuesday. An individual by the name of Elliot Kerr submitted an application on behalf of a yet-to-be-incorporated company, indicating that the proposed station’s contours would strictly limit its signal to the Mississauga area. The commission approved the licence, noting that the station’s shortened radiated distance and market share of the GTA audience make it unlikely that the station will have a significant financial impact on other stations operating in the market. Astral Media Radio G.P., owned by Astral Media Inc., had argued “that it is impossible to separate each GTA community from its surrounding cities and/or Toronto itself as these communities operate, in part, as one large market. It was therefore of the view that applications for communities within the GTA must be analyzed in that context,” the CRTC decision said.
