CKBN 90,5 FM is a French language community radio broadcasting from Bécancour, Quebec. La Voix de la Rive-sud (The Voice of the South Shore) is the slogan of the community broadcaster. The station was approved by CRTC on Jan 30, 2004 when the commission approved applicant: Coopérative de solidarité radio communautaire Nicolet-Yamaska-Bécancour, Quebec to set up a Francophone community radio on a frequency of 90.5 MHz with an ERP of 34,000 w. Broadcasting a total of 126 hours, 116 would be produced locally by the radio. The applicant was not satisfied with the authorized contour and therefore requested the commission for amends in frequency and wattage. 88.1 MHz and 2,600 w (avg) were the new frequency and transmitter power sought by the licensee. The commission didn’t agree with the CKBN 90,5 FM and disapproved the change on Feb 16, 2006. CRTC gave licensee the last chance to get the FM on air by July 30, 2007.
