CIRP-FM (94.7 MHz) is a non-profit radio station which broadcasts a Christian radio format from Spryfield, Nova Scotia, a community in the Halifax Regional Municipality. The station is owned by City Church of Halifax on Herring Cove Road. CIRP-FM plays Light Christian Contemporary music in the morning and Southern Gospel music later in the day.[1]

History[edit]

On March 16, 2011, City Church Halifax applied for a new English-language Christian FM radio station at Spryfield. The new station would broadcast on the frequency 94.7 MHz (channel 234LP) with an effective radiated power of 50 watts, using a non-directional antenna with a height above average terrain of 8.3 metres. On September 16, 2011, City Church Halifax received approval by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to operate the new FM station at Spryfield.[2]

The station was given the call sign CIRP-FM and branded on air as Life 94.7 FM. The station has since raised its tower height to 25.5 meters (84 ft).
