More AM License Renewals.
The CRTC announced license renewal decisions for three more AM stations until August 31 2030. The stations are listed below and each was reminded of the Revised Commercial Radio Policy’s expectation of 5% of the music aired to be from Canadian emerging artists. A new annual report is also required that details the amount of Indigenous content aired, including percentage of Indigenous music and number of Indigenous musical artists.
