CJFL 104.7 FM Iroquois Falls Ends it's Run With Pride.

Attention all, As of July 21, this will be the last weekend that none profit community station CJFL-FM Iroquois Falls will be on air. Because of the decline in the Iroquois Falls market we just don't have enough to keep the station on air. I thank all of our great supporters in getting the application and helping us out throughout these great years of success. I Joel Lagace am honored that this community and the CRTC believed in me for this undertaking. It was very good experience, I enjoyed working with the community with something I know and like. But now I must also take this time to move on in my life and take these lessons learned and keep growing in the field of broadcasting. CJFL-FM March 2005 - July 2014. [2]
