StokeFM’s license for a community radio station in Reveltsoke has been approved, the CRTC announced Wednesday morning.

The fledgling radio station, which will be located at 92.5 on the FM dial, has been in the works for the better part of a year, has received a license to operate until the at least Aug. 31, 2016.

According to the application, posted on the CRTC website, the station will broadcast 126 hours of programming each week, with at least one hour of that in French. Programming will include music by international and local artists, local news, educational programs, tourist information; and shows about local artists, local politics and aboriginal artists.

According to the terms of the license, a StokeFM can broadcast with a signal of up to four watts. The station still needs approval from the Department of Industry certifying that the broadcast doesn’t interfere with aeronautical NAV/COM services.

The StokeFM website will be located at www.stokefm.com. You can see a preview of the site at catchtheinfection.com/stoke.

Scott Duke, the owner of StokeFM, was not immediately available for comment. He previously told the Times Review the station was aiming for a mid-November launch.
