College Radio Station KICK FM Going Off the Air

After nearly 10 years, 92.9 KICK FM is going off the air.

The Red River College radio station will go silent at 4 p.m. on Wednesdsay, forced to power down after new CRTC regulations regarding campus and community radio stations, as well as financial challenges.

Despite hoping to once become a self-sustaining station, Red River College continued to fund KICK FM and provided the transmitter, equipment and facilities.

The station will continue to train students for a career in radio and has a plan to resume Internet streaming in the fall.
