Dawg FM Ottawa frequency swap
Update about the change: it has been delayed 7 days. The change is now happening on August 26 at 7pm.
Friday August 26 at 7pm 101.9 Dawg FM Ottawa is going to slide over to 101.7 and CHIP a community radio station based in Fort Coulonge, Quebec, which is 90km northwest of Gatineau, will move to 101.9.
Also earlier this year the CRTC removed the 20% requirements to broadcast Canadian jazz and blues. Dawg is also licensed as a mainstream station and not specialty so that means they can change formats which I expect will also happen this Friday. Midday host Patricia Lever and afternoon host Geoff Hunter have been let go as a result.
Darryl Kornicky prev of BOB FM has been hired so far in preparation of expected changes.
