Ryerson radio station stays on the air

Judge stays CRTC decision to revoke CKLN's license

A decision to shut down Ryerson radio station, CKLN, has been put on hold until at least April, a judge has ruled. In late January, the CRTC revoked the station’s license following an investigation  into complaints over the station’s management structure and purported lack of involvement from the Ryerson community. Among the problems cited by the CRTC were year-end financial statements stamped with the wrong date, sub par programming logs, limited involvement from students who fund the station and infighting on the board of directors. A new board has since been elected, and is hoping to hire a new station manager within the month. A judge has granted an emergency stay of the CRTC decision until Federal Court can rule whether CKLN’s appeal can be heard.
