The new calls for 106.9 Lakewood, in the Jamestown market?  WKZA, as
it turns out, not "WKSQ" as the FCC had erroneously reported a few
weeks back.  The latter calls remain in Maine...

*Up in CANADA, a new station is coming to the Quebec City market -- a
new AM station, in fact.  Yves Sauve has been granted a 10kw full-time
facility on 1060 kHz, a frequency that's been dark up there since the
days of the old CJRP almost a decade ago.  The new station will
broadcast from Saint Nicolas on the south shore, playing country

Up the St. Lawrence in Donnacona, CKNU (100.9) has been denied a tower
move to Val Belair, which would have put the station in the Quebec
City market.  

Out in New Brunswick, we heard from the folks at Sussex's CJCW (590),
who tell us the station is ending its partial (nights and weekends)
simulcast with Moncton's CKCW (1220) and going local full-time with
"Favourites 590" programming.

Back in Ontario, CJET-FM (92.3 Smiths Falls) ended its test period
and began regular broadcasts Friday (10/27) as "Country 92.3."  The AM
on 630 is now simulcasting the FM for a period of no more than three

And we're told that the calls on 103.1 and 103.9 in the London market
didn't change when the formats switched a few months back -- so
"Energy 103.1" is still CFHK, while "The Hawk" at 103.9 is CKDK.

*That's it for this week.  Be sure to join us next week for some major
announcements about the future of this column and your humble editor
-- you won't want to miss it!
