CHSV-FM is a new radio station which will broadcast an English-language soft adult contemporary/easy listening format on the frequency of 106.7 MHz (FM) in Hudson/Saint-Lazare, Quebec, Canada, part of Montreal's western suburbs. The station is owned by Evanov Communications under licensee Dufferin Communications Inc.

History[edit]

On January 20, 2012, Evanov announced that Dufferin applied with the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to establish a new Soft AC station in Hudson; the new station would broadcast at 106.7 MHz at 500 watts at 94 metres HAAT. The frequency choice, however, would have conflicted with CKDG-FM's plans to relocate to 106.7, the frequency previously used by an Aboriginal Voices repeater in Montreal;[1][2] however, on February 6, 2012, CKDG notified the CRTC that they had withdrawn its application for the frequency change, though it was unknown whether or not Evanov's application for the new station had to do with its decision.[3][4]

On October 19, 2012, Evanov received approval for the new station from the CRTC.[5] The new station would receive the CHSV-FM callsign in February 2013. When the station begins broadcasting, it will adopt the Jewel branding used by many other Evanov stations in the chain.[6]
