The applicant indicated that the station would broadcast a total of 126 hours of local programming per broadcast week. This programming would include, among other things, local and regional news, spoken word programs, as well as musical selections drawn from content categories 2 (Popular Music) and 3 (Special Interest Music). It would also be comprised of daily programs, local news, weather, sports and in-depth spoken word programming reflective of the realities of the Lebel-sur-Quévillon community and focusing on issues such as health, nutrition and the economy.
