College Radio Station KICK FM Going Off the Air

July 3, 2012 2:57 PM | News


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.
