Broadcast Dialogue magazine makes us aware that Matthew McBride’s two Long Beach Radio stations, CHMZ-FM Tofino and CIMM-FM Ucluelet are among a handful of Canadian broadcasters whose licences expire Aug. 31 and are in apparent repeated non-compliance according to the CRTC.
The stations have not filed a pile of required paperwork, e.g. annual returns, submission of radio monitoring material, response to requests for information and Canadian content. Furthermore, they’ve been on short-term renewals for similar transgressions of CRTC policy.
A station in Meadow Lake Saskatchewan and McBride’s two Vancouver Island operations are the only stations on the naughty list west of Quebec.
