You may soon be able to leave your iPod at home the next time you head out to Winnipeg Beach.
The CRTC approved an application for a new FM radio station to operate in the lakeside community north of Winnipeg.
In a ruling filed Wednesday, the federal broadcast regulator approved the use of the 107.5 MHz frequency to be used by CJIE-FM for new English-language commercial radio programming.
The new radio station — which has yet to be named — will serve Gimli and Winnipeg Beach, with its transmitter located in Arborg.
No word on when it will eventually hit the airwaves, but we’re told the format will be country/pop/rock.
