CKTS to Stop Rebroadcasting CJAD
The CRTC has been notified of the decision to relinquish the license. CKTS first began rebroadcasting CJAD, which is owned by Standard Radio, after a CRTC ruling in 1992. CKTS was subsequently acquired by Corus Québec in an
exchange of assets with Astral in 2005.
"The CKTS antenna needs major work, and expenses for annual upkeep are significant. Given Standard Radio's decision not to cover these costs, we have
no choice but to relinquish the license to the CRTC," explained Corus Quebec network vice president Jacques Papin. This means that the frequency is now
available in the Sherbrooke market.
