The content chose by the AMMSA was of generalist and diverse nature including Ethnic programs, Music, current affairs, news, community issues and other general classifications. The AMMSA form early 90s is working with a vision to include every First Nation under its umbrella and use every opportunity to expand its coverage. The reach of CFWE in Ft. McMurray in 2009 establishment of a number of broadcasters in the Province, the applications made to CRTC for up gradation of transmitters in Edmonton to 100,000 watts and need for second frequency in Edmonton and plans to get expansion in Calgary in 2015 are surely adding to the productivity of the AMMSA’s crop in 2016.
