Thanks to Broadcast Dialogue for alerting us to a new Calgary AM station, CJLI, which finally began Christian talk programming this past Monday.
AM700 The Light Calgary, with a 50,000- watt daytime signal and owned by Touch Canada Broadcasting, launched June 29, six years after receiving CRTC approval. At 7:00 that morning, a produced piece was aired that talked about the long process, the search for a transmitter site, the station’s background and its vision.
The new Christian Talk station is twinned with Christian Music sister station 88.9 Shine FM Calgary…
I can’t remember the last NEW 50,000 watt AM signal anywhere in Canada. Somehow I thought this news deserved a little more attention.
