On February 22, the CRTC approved by majority vote the application for a broadcasting licence for a English-language FM campus/community radio programming undertaking at Caronport, on the frequency 92.7 MHz, channel 224VLP, with an effective radiated power of 5 watts. The applicant was a company incorporated under the Saskatchewan non-profit Corporations Act and controlled by a board made up of six members. The station would be financed by Briercrest Bible College. The new station would broadcast 126 hours of local programming per week and musical programming would consist of Category 3 music (Traditional and Special Interest) exclusively. The proposed programming would be predominantly religious. The Commission reminded the applicant that the proposed repeat factor of 12 was inconsistent with the campus/community radio policy’s goal of encouraging musical diversity. Accordingly, the applicant was required to submit to the Commission, within three months of the date of the decision, a revised page 3 of its Promise of Performance, indicating a commitment to limit its repeat factor to 10. The Commission authorized the applicant by condition of licence, to broadcast no more than 504 minutes of advertising per broadcast week, with a maximum of 4 minutes in any one hour. Of the weekly total of 504 minutes, a maximum of 126 minutes could be conventional advertising. 

CJOS-FM signed on the air in August. Studios and offices were at Briercrest College and Seminary, 510 College Drive, Caronport.


At noon, April 25, 92.7 FM CJOS ceased broadcasting.

At the request of Briercrest Community Radio Inc., the CRTC revoked the licence of community-based campus station CJOS-FM on May 17.
