New Radio Station Launching in Winnipeg Beach

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.
