The hearing for The Scope at Ryerson’s AM licence took place last Thursday in Gatineau, Que.
The result of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission hearing is undetermined and will not be made clear for some time.
Staff at The Scope are hoping the decision will be made this year and are optimistic that the AM non-profit campus community licence will be granted.
“We put forward the best application we could have had,” said Elissa Matthews, The Scope’s program director.
If the licence is not granted The Scope’s board will have to reconvene and discuss funding options.
Radio Ryerson, the Scope’s predecessor, was rejected in 2012 for it’s FM licence application after the closure of Ryerson’s previous radio station, CKLN-FM, in 2011.
