CBC wants radio ads to stay

The CBC has sent an application to the CRTC to amend the broadcasting licences for ICI Musique and CBC Radio 2 to allow those radio stations to continue to have paid national advertising through Aug. 31, 2018. Those stations were first given approval to air national advertising in December 2013, and that licence amendment expires at the end of August this year. The deadline for interventions into the CBC’s application is June 22.

Do Not Call investigations to cost CRTC $3.3 million
