After nearly four years of planning and development, Peach City Community Radio is facing its biggest challenge yet.

Dave del Rizzo, president of the community radio society, said they have just received word that their licence hearing before the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission has been scheduled for Jan. 8. As well, the period for public consultation that the CRTC requires is now open, until Nov. 20.

“Community members have a chance until that date to submit letters of support on our behalf, telling the CRTC why they think that a broadcast community station would be important for Penticton,” said del Rizzo. “It can be done electronically, so it’s very easy, and we would very much appreciate the support from the community.”
