OTTAWA - Having had an application on file for nearly two years, the CRTC has issued a general call for applications for a new TV station in the Niagara region.

David Storey, a CHCH alum, applied to the CRTC in early 2003 for a commercial TV license for the region.

As is usual, the "Commission hereby calls for applications from other parties wishing to obtain a broadcasting license to provide a television service to the Niagara region," says today's release.

The deadline to apply is February 7th, 2005.

"It should be noted that, in making this call, the Commission has not reached any conclusion with respect to the licensing of any service at this time. Applicants will be required to provide evidence giving clear indication that there is a demand and a market for the station and the proposed service," says the Commission.

Broadcaster Poll
When it comes to the three subscription radio applications to be heard by the CRTC November (see this site for stories explaining it), should the Commission:
Approve all three?  
Approve the CHUM "Canadian" option?  
Approve one or both of the satellite options?  
Approve none?
