CKNT is a new radio station which will broadcast a news/talk radio format on the frequency of 960 kHz/AM in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.

History[edit]

On November 22, 2011, Elliot Kerr, on behalf of a corporation to be incorporated received an approval by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to operate a new English language news/talk AM radio station at Mississauga. [1] The new station would provide local news and information, weather, sports, traffic, including coverage of city council, local business issues, and community related political and social events.

A launch date has yet to be announced. The station was to sign on the air by November 22, 2013.

On September 11, 2014, the CRTC approved Elliot Kerr's application to decrease the daytime transmitter power from 2,000 to 700 watts, by decreasing the night-time transmitter power from 180 to 104 watts, and by relocating the transmitter. [2]

The AM 960 frequency was originally used by a radio station out of Cambridge, Ontario, known today as CJDV-FM.
