CJLO radio received their campus/community broadcasting licence from the CRTC on Friday. The announcement comes months after the station originally met with the Canadian regulating body in November.
Within the coming months, the station and the CRTC will test its broadcast tower with a goal to get on air by the end of the summer. The station will begin by broadcasting on the 1690 am frequency.
CJLO is also heavily supported by Concordia students who in November, voted in favour of a fee levy increase to support their licensing application.
The station also announced the hiring of a new station manager. Melanie Benard began her position on Monday and brings 10 years of community radio experience to the station.
