Corus Entertainment is abandoning its unauthorized talk on FM experiment in Calgary, promising the launch of a new music station in the market by the end of July.

Corus debuted QR Calgary: Talk on FM in January 2023 on former Classic Rock station Q107 (CFGQ-FM), simulcasting 770 CHQR, a high ratings performer for the network.

At the time, Regional Program Director John Vos told Broadcast Dialogue that attracting a wider audience was the main motivator behind the decision.

Operating outside the bounds of current CRTC guidelines, the commission questioned whether the station was in compliance, prompting Corus to formally apply to amend the licence for CFGQ-FM to add an AM rebroadcasting transmitter, while revoking the licence for 770 CHQR.
