The airwaves of Cranbrook will soon be a richer, busier place, with the addition of a new radio station.
On Tuesday, July 29, the Canadian Radiotelevision and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) approved the application by Clear Sky Radio for a new FM radio station for Cranbrook.
The station will be known as “Summit 107,” will have repeater FM frequencies in Fernie, Sparwood and Invermere.
The music format will be “Adult Contemporary” and the station will feature significant local news and community information.
We are thrilled that the CRTC continues to believe in our goal of bringing exciting, innovative and creative radio stations with a focus on community service to markets in which we apply” said Paul Larsen, President of Clear Sky Radio.
“We do not take the Commission’s trust in our company lightly and look forward to launching an exciting new radio station to serve this dynamic region of British Columbia in the near future”.
Summit 107 will broadcast at 107.5 FM in Cranbrook and Kimberley, 107.9 FM in Fernie, 107.1 FM in Sparwood and Elkford and 107.7 FM in Invermere effectively covering the whole East Kootenay.
