So...What's all the excitment about? Well... a recent (CRTC Ruling 2013-620) has removed a long standing restriction on Tourist Radio content. Up until the new ruling Tourist Radio Stations have not been allowed to advertise. Yes, you read that right; the stipulation for getting a broadcast certificate was based upon "Broadcast without Consideration" which meant no payment for saying nice things about any company providing tourist services. You might wonder how a station can survive without advertisers...so did we... and the other 30 tourist information stations in Canada.
This is NOW a great opportunity for Tourism Stakeholders, Visitor Centres, and Economic Development officials to bring prosperity to your town.
