CIRC-FM was a tourist information radio station in Fredericton, New Brunswick that broadcasts at 93.3 FM. The station, licensed in 2004,[1] is owned and operated by Jack McGaw and Robert Stapells. The station reportedly ceased broadcasting on February 10, 2010. [2]

On August 11, 2010, Instant Information Services Incorporated received approval from the CRTC to change the authorized contours of the English language low-power FM tourist radio programming undertaking CIRC-FM Fredericton by relocating its transmitter site within Fredericton and by increasing the effective antenna height above average terrain from 32 to 38 metres. All other technical parameters will remain unchanged.[3]

Technical issues[edit]

On May 12, 2012, CIHI-FM, owned by Newcap Broadcasting received CRTC approval to operate a new English language FM radio station at Fredriction. The new station will operate at 93.1 MHz which is an adjacent frequency to CIRC-FM's 93.3 MHz. Instant Information Services Incorporated will have to find another FM frequency to avoid interference with the new CIHI-FM station. [4]

Fondation Radio Enfant[edit]

The call sign CIRC was previously assigned to a short term licensee in Gatineau, Quebec, [5] which was licensed to provide a francophone children's radio service on 96.5 FM for the duration of the Rendez-vous de la Francophonie in 2002. The 96.5 frequency in Gatineau was later reassigned to CFTX-FM, and Fondation Radio-Enfant was granted a permanent AM license in Gatineau in early 2007 for what is now CJEU.
