A new radio station could be coming to Kamloops — but the people behind it don’t expect to start broadcasting until much later this year.
The International Harvesters for Christ/Harvesters Media Group (HMG) has a May 31 hearing with the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission on its application for a licence to open a Christian radio station in Kelowna, with a rebroadcasting transmitter in Kamloops.
HMG is based in New Brunswick.
The application was originally to have been heard by the CRTC on Jan. 11, but was withdrawn to be rescheduled later.
Jeff Lutes, president of the organization behind the bid, said he doesn’t expect a ruling on the application until the fall.
In its application, the group proposes programming from 6 a.m. to midnight, including religious-teaching programs — which would take up about five hours a day — and Christian music. News, weather and local-event promotions would also be part of daily programming.
