SURREY – Canadian Radio-Television Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has approved an application by Surrey-based Red FM station owner Kulwinder Sanghera and his Multicultural Broadcasting Corporation to operate a multicultural FM radio station in Calgary.

In granting the license to MBC, the commission noted that Multicultural Broadcasting Corporation is a well financed and experienced broadcaster whose experience would contribute to its ability to establish itself in the Calgary radio market.

Thanking the community, Sanghera said, “We would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to all those who have supported us in our endeavours to reach out to the ethnic community in Calgary. We promise Calgarians high quality credible local programming relevant to their daily lives, 24 hours a day.”

Red FM’s General Manager Bijoy Samuel said, “Our community is our most precious resource and as we look to establishing our presence in Calgary we would like to assure Calgarians that Red FM will always be, by the community and for the community”.

Sanghera said Red FM’s mandate in Calgary will not only be to inform, educate, entertain and empower the listeners but the station will help strengthen the community by providing the much needed bridge between the mainstream and the ethnic community.

 Red 106.7 FM’s Calgary operations will begin early next year.
