    CHOI
    CHOI (ou CHOI-FM) est une station de radio FM qui diffuse sur la fréquence 98.1 MHz à Québec, au Québec. Localement, elle était mieux connue sous le nom de R@dio X (en référence à la « Génération X »). Elle fut la propriété de Genex Communications pendant une décennie. Les derniers sondages BBM (Avril 2007) ont révélé que CHOI était toujours la station la plus populaire de la ville de Québec avec ses quelques 273 000 auditeurs.

    Moribonde au tournant des années 1990, la station a été achetée par Patrice Demers, président de Genex Communications et d'autres actionnaires. Elle a changé radicalement de format musical et éditorial, en allant à contre-courant de ce qui se faisait alors, et en imposant le format Radio X. Après quelques années de vache maigre, la station est devenue rentable, puis s'est hissée au sommet des habitudes d'écoutes dans son marché.

    La station est reconnue pour diffuser des idées et opinions controversées, notamment vis-à-vis de la gauche québécoise. Avec les années, elle est devenue la cible de différents groupes de pression, notamment les syndicats, les groupes féministes et le milieu artistique. Elle est également devenue partenaire d'une multitude d'événements et s'est impliquée dans diverses causes sociales et communautaires, telles que la lutte contre la prostitution juvénile et la sauvegarde de l'Agora de Québec.

    Musicalement, elle diffuse dans un format rock et modern rock, malgré la difficulté provenant de la consigne de contenu francophone imposée par le Conseil de la radiodiffusion et des télécommunications canadiennes (CRTC). Avec les années et le succès commercial, CHOI est cependant devenue beaucoup moins audacieuse qu'au début du virage rock emprunté en 1993. Elle diffuse aujourd'hui un rock très conventionnel et va souvent puiser dans le classic rock susceptible de plaire à un public plus âgé, mais demeure encore un cas à part dans le paysage radiophonique de la province.

    Le 8 mai 2006, Genex annonce qu'une entente pour la vente de CHOI-FM au groupe Radio Nord a été conclue. Radio Nord s'est empressée d'assurer que le format radiophonique demeurerait inchangé. Patrice Demers conserve pour sa part ses fonctions actuelles et estime que, sans une vente, il devrait fermer la station. Genex doit continuer, malgré la transaction, d'assumer les coûts reliés aux poursuites civiles intentées contre CHOI par Sophie Chiasson et Robert Gillet. Le 20 octobre 2006, le CRTC approuve la vente de CHOI à Radio-Nord, ce qui règle le dossier de Genex contre le CRTC.

    Conflit avec le CRTC [modifier]

    Jean-François Fillion [modifier]

    Jean-François Fillion était l'animateur vedette de la station. Le « morning man » animait, en compagnie de son équipe, le Monde parallèle de Jeff Fillion, les jours de semaine. Au fil des années, ses idées et opinions ont fait de lui l'animateur de radio le plus controversé à Québec. Fillion a été poursuivi à de multiples reprises pour diffamation, en particulier envers des personnalités publiques du Québec. Les conflits entre sa station et le CRTC lui sont grandement attribuables. Le matin du 17 mars 2005, Fillion a démissionné de son poste d'animateur du matin à la station. Il semble peu probable qu'il retourne un jour sur les ondes radiophoniques. Il anime aujourd'hui une radio Internet, nommée RadioPirate.

    Événements [modifier]

    Le 13 juillet 2004, le CRTC annonça qu'il ne renouvellerait pas le permis de diffusion de CHOI parce que la station a tenu des propos offensants et insultants même après avoir été mise en probation en 2002. Cela signifiait que la station serait forcée d'arrêter de diffuser tout signal radio après la nuit du 31 août 2004, lorsque son permis serait échu. Le 22 juillet 2004, 50000 personnes - selon la police de la ville de Québec et les organisateurs de l'évènement - sont descendues dans les rues de la ville pour protester contre cette décision, réclamant le droit à la liberté d'expression. Cette marche, baptisée simplement « La Marche », fut la plus grande marche à l'intérieur de la ville depuis les années 1960.

    Le 10 août 2004, 8000 auditeurs de la station allèrent protester devant le Parlement à Ottawa pour montrer leur support envers la station. CHOI diffusa son émission de l'après-midi en direct d'Ottawa.

    Le 11 août 2004, la station porta la décision en appel devant la cour fédérale pour lui permettre de voir renouveler son permis et ainsi renverser la décision du CTRC.

    Le 25 août 2004, le CRTC et le gouvernement fédéral ne s'opposèrent pas à la demande de la station lui permettant de diffuser pendant les procédures judiciaires. Cela signifie que même si le permis de CHOI a expiré le 31 août 2004, elle peut encore diffuser pendant les procédures judiciaires toujours en cours devant la cour d'appel fédérale du Canada.

    Le 1er septembre 2005, la cour d'appel appuya la décision du CRTC et donna 20 jours à la station pour porter la décision en Cour suprême. La Cour suprême a reçu la demande de Genex et décidera si elle entendra la cause prochainement.

    Le (20 octobre) 2006, le CRTC a donné l'autorisation à CHOI de vendre la station à Radio-Nord.

    Le 14 juin 2007, la Cour Suprême refuse d'entendre l'appel de Genex concernant la décision de la cour fédérale. Le CRTC qui voit donc sa décision de fermeture antérieure confirmée annonce que la licence sera retirée et que le droit d'émettre sera transféré à Radio-Nord Communications selon le contrat de vente ratifié antérieurement à la demande d'appel à la Cour Suprême. La station ne cessera donc pas d'émettre.

    La fermeture de CHOI par le CRTC a généré un vif débat au sujet de la liberté d'expression au Québec et ailleurs au Canada.

    Depuis ce temps Gilles, 30 ans d'expérience radio, a compris qu'en fait son nouvel employeur était seulement une version revampée de CHRC-FM

    Historique selon la CCF

    Québec, Québec/Chaudière-Apalaches Quebec/Chaudiere-Apalaches

    CHOI-FM, Québec City, RNC Media

    1949
    CHRC Ltee, owner of CHRC-AM, opened CHRC-FM on November 1.

    1957
    CHRC-FM was operating on 98.1 MHz with a power of 595 watts. CHRC Ltee was owned by H. Baribeau 39.6%, E. Fontaine 16.7%, E. Flynn 7.2%, J.H. Price 13.9%, G. Pratte 18.4%, H. LePage 4.1%, J. Grenier 0.1%.

    1966
    By this time, CHRC-FM was operating in stereo with a power of 81,000 watts. The station was offering some programming separate from CHRC-AM.

    Undated
    CHRC Ltee was purchased by Télé-Capitale Ltée.

    CHRC-FM became CHOI-FM.

    1979
    On August 7, approval was granted for the transfer of indirect control of (A) Enterprises Tele-Capitale Ltee (CKLM, CFCM-TV, CKMI-TV, CFER-TV and CFER-TV-1); (B) CHRC Ltee (CHRC-AM and CHOI-FM) – through the transfer of not less than 50.5% of Class B common voting shares of Tele-Capitale Ltee (the parent company) from Claude Pratte and one or both of the other major shareholders, Jevlam Inc. (J. A. Pouliot) and Baribeau & Fils Inc. (Baribeau family) to Corporation de Gestion La Verendrye. This was conditional on Corporation de Gestion LaVerendrye doing a public offering within 21 days to acquire Class A common non-voting shares of Tele-Capitale.

    Also approved on the same date, the transfer of CHRC and CHOI-FM from CHRC Ltee to Tele-Capitale Ltee and then on to Enterprises Tele-Capitale Ltee.

    1985
    Capital Radio Broadcasting Operations Inc. purchased CHRC and CHOI-FM from Télé-Capitale Inc. (formerly Télé-Capitale Ltée).

    1995
    Télémédia Communications Inc. purchased CHOI-FM from Les Entreprises de Radiodiffusion de la Capitale Inc. Télémédia already owned an FM station in the city (CITF) so had to sell CHOI to a third party.

    1997
    Genex Communications inc. acquired CHOI from Les Entreprises de Radiodiffusion de la Capitale inc. (Télémédia). Genex was owned by Patrice Demers, 60%; Les Entreprises Octave inc., 20%; and Télémédia, 20%.

    1998
    CHOI was given approval to decrease effective radiated power from 81,000 to 40,000 watts and to relocate the transmitter to a site 1.4 kilometres from the current site.

    2004
    On July 13, the CRTC decided not to renew the licence of CHOI-FM and issued a call for broadcasting licences to carry on a new French-language FM station in Québec. Since Genex acquired CHOI-FM in 1997, the programming on the station had been the subject of numerous complaints with respect to the conduct of the hosts and the spoken word content that aired, including offensive comments, personal attacks and harassment. The Commission found that on numerous occasions, Genex had failed to comply with the Radio Regulations 1986 as well as CHOI’s Code of Ethics. The station was ordered to be off the air by August 31, the expiry date of the existing licence. The CRTC issued a call for applications for a broadcasting licence to carry on a French-language radio station.

    On August 26, the Federal Court of Appeal authorized Genex to continue operating CHOI-FM under the same terms and conditions as those specified in the licence then in effect, and directed the CRTC to stay the call for applications for a new broadcasting licence to operate on the 98.1 MHz frequency in Québec. The stay was to remain in effect until the FCA rendered its final judgment on the merits in the matter of the appeal filed by Genex from Decision 2004-271.

    2005
    On September 14, the CRTC issued a Broadcasting Public Notice in which it announced that the call for applications would be restricted to those that proposed to use frequencies other than 98.1 MHz.

    The Federal Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal by Genex on September 1.
    On September 23, the Federal Court of Appeal extended the period during which Genex was permitted to continue operating CHOI-FM under the same terms and conditions as those specified in its previous licence, and extended its order to stay the call for applications for use of the 98.1 MHz frequency, until such time as the Supreme Court of Canada rendered a decision on an application to be filed by Genex for leave to appeal the FCA decision of 1 September 2005.

    On October 31, Genex filed an application with the Supreme Court of Canada for leave to appeal the FCA decision of September 1.
    2006
    On June 13, Genex filed a motion with the Supreme Court of Canada requesting that its consideration of Genex’s application for leave to appeal be adjourned for one year. Genex stated that it had entered into an agreement with Radio Nord Communications inc., under which RNCI would apply for a new licence to continue the operation of CHOI-FM. It added that RNCI had in fact filed such an application with the Commission, and submitted that a certain period of time was required to allow for consideration of the application at a public hearing.On June 29, the Supreme Court of Canada agreed to adjourn, until 31 May 2007, its consideration of Genex’s application for leave to appeal.
    On October 20, the CRTC approved the application by Radio Nord Communications inc. for a broadcasting licence to carry on a French-language FM radio programming undertaking in Québec. In effect, RNCI would contine the operation of radio station CHOI-FM on the 98.1 MHz frequency, with an effective radiated power of 40,000 watts. The applicant proposed to offer an alternative rock music format that would target an audience of young adults 18 to 34 years of age. RNCI said the station would focus on local content and provide 100% local programming. The company emphasized that the news to be broadcast as part of CHOI-FM’s programming would be distinct from that of its station CKNU-FM Donnacona, so as to effectively meet the needs of the two different target audiences. The CHOI-FM newsroom would also remain independent and have two full-time journalists.

    2007
    Radio Nord became known as RNC Media.

    Georgette Lacroix a été la principale artisante des débuts de CHOI qui s'appelait CHRC-FM à l'époque. C'est elle qui a élaboré la programmation séparé de CHRC-AM, animait et dirigeait la station de façon générale, s'occupait de la publicité etc., jusqu'au moment où les deux stations CHRC AM et FM déménagèrent sur le chemin Ste-Foy coin Myrand. Elle prit sa retraite à ce moment, elle qui avait travaillé aussi un bon bout de temps à CHRC-AM dans les années 40, 50 et le début des années 60. Lorsque toute la programmation fut complètement séparée, les lettres d'appel furent changées pour CHOI (probablement en 1972).

    Quelques animateurs de marque à CHOI (CHRC-FM):

    Georgette Lacroix (CHRC-FM)

    Ces deux passages n'existent plus. Comme quoi, si n'importe qui peut écrire n'importe quoi ou presque sur Wikipédia, il n'en demeure pas moins que certains veillent au grain.

    Il y a effectivement certaines mises à jour qui se font sur wikipédia. C'est une des raisons à l'époque pourquoi j'avais soulevé la question, ça ne voulait plus rien dire.

    Mise à jour

    Québec, Québec/Chaudière-Apalaches Quebec/Chaudiere-Apalaches

    CHOI-FM, Québec City, RNC Media

    1947
    CHRC Ltee (CHRC-AM) was granted a 250 watt FM licence.

    1949
    CHRC-FM opened on November 1. It broadcast on a frequency of 98.1 MHz and had a power of 250 watts.

    1957
    CHRC-FM was operating on 98.1 MHz with a power of 595 watts. CHRC Ltee was owned by H. Baribeau 39.6%, E. Fontaine 16.7%, E. Flynn 7.2%, J.H. Price 13.9%, G. Pratte 18.4%, H. LePage 4.1%, J. Grenier 0.1%.
    1965
    By this time, CHRC-FM was operating in stereo with an effective radiated power of 81,000 watts. The station offered programming independent of CHRC-AM between Noon and Midnight, Monday thru Saturday, and between 10:30 a.m. and Midnight on Sundays. Col. Harve Baribeau was president of CHRC Ltee.

    Undated
    CHRC Ltee was purchased by Télé-Capitale Ltée.

    1976
    CHRC-FM became CHOI-FM.

    1978
    CHOI had its application for change of promise of performance denied. The CRTC accused the station of violating conditions of licence by implementing substantial changes in programming without approval. CHOI-FM was directed to comply with the authorized POP within 30 days.

    1979
    On August 7, approval was granted for the transfer of indirect control of (A) Enterprises Tele-Capitale Ltee (CKLM, CFCM-TV, CKMI-TV, CFER-TV and CFER-TV-1); (B) CHRC Ltee (CHRC-AM and CHOI-FM) – through the transfer of not less than 50.5% of Class B common voting shares of Tele-Capitale Ltee (the parent company) from Claude Pratte and one or both of the other major shareholders, Jevlam Inc. (J. A. Pouliot) and Baribeau & Fils Inc. (Baribeau family) to Corporation de Gestion La Verendrye. This was conditional on Corporation de Gestion LaVerendrye doing a public offering within 21 days to acquire Class A common non-voting shares of Tele-Capitale. J. Conrad Lavigne was among the new directors of Tele-Capitale. The company undertook to make the following improvements at CHRC/CHOI-FM: $650,000 for separate facilities, $100,000 to develop local talent over the next four years.

    Also approved on the same date, the transfer of CHRC and CHOI-FM from CHRC Ltee to Tele-Capitale Ltee and then on to Enterprises Tele-Capitale Ltee.

    1980
    J. Roger Hebert became vice president and general manager of CHOI-FM.

    In renewing CHOI's licence, the CRTC described the station as one of the best private French-language FM stations in Quebec.

    1985
    Capital Radio Broadcasting Operations Inc. purchased CHRC and CHOI-FM from Télé-Capitale Inc. (formerly Télé-Capitale Ltée).

    1986
    The CRTC told CHOI that its licence may be in jeopardy if deviations from its Promise of Performance continued. The station was called to a public hearing because of complaints by CJMF-FM. CHOI admitted programming had been altered during the spring of 1986 BBM survey. The station also accused CJMF of similar failings but the Commission rejected CHOI's attempts to justify its actions. Unintelligible logger tapes were also an issue. CHOI was ordered to confirm by February 15, 1987, that its logger tape equipment was in place and operating.

    1995
    Télémédia Communications Inc. purchased CHOI-FM from Les Entreprises de Radiodiffusion de la Capitale Inc. Télémédia already owned an FM station in the city (CITF) so had to sell CHOI to a third party.

    1997
    Telemedia announced it had sold 80% of CHOI-FM to Genex Communications, 60% owned by Patrice Demers and 20% by Les Enterprises Octave (controlled by Jean Morin). Telmedia would finance the purchase but said if future operating losses force it to take back the station, it would immediately put it up for sale again. Telemedia had acquired CHOI with CHRC but was told to sell the FM because it already owned CITF-FM in Quebec City.

    The CRTC approved the purchase of CHOI-FM by Genex Communications inc. from Les Entreprises de Radiodiffusion de la Capitale inc. (Télémédia). Télémédia would continue to hold a 20% interest.

    1998
    CHOI was given approval to decrease effective radiated power from 81,000 to 40,000 watts and to relocate the transmitter to a site 1.4 kilometres from the current site.

    2004
    On July 13, the CRTC decided not to renew the licence of CHOI-FM and issued a call for broadcasting licences to carry on a new French-language FM station in Québec.

The station was ordered to be off the air by August 31, the expiry date of the existing licence. The CRTC issued a call for applications for a broadcasting licence to carry on a French-language radio station.

    On August 26, the Federal Court of Appeal authorized Genex to continue operating CHOI-FM under the same terms and conditions as those specified in the licence then in effect, and directed the CRTC to stay the call for applications for a new broadcasting licence to operate on the 98.1 MHz frequency in Québec. The stay was to remain in effect until the FCA rendered its final judgment on the merits in the matter of the appeal filed by Genex from Decision 2004-271.

    2005
    On September 14, the CRTC issued a Broadcasting Public Notice in which it announced that the call for applications would be restricted to those that proposed to use frequencies other than 98.1 MHz.

    The Federal Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal by Genex on September 1.
    On September 23, the Federal Court of Appeal extended the period during which Genex was permitted to continue operating CHOI-FM under the same terms and conditions as those specified in its previous licence, and extended its order to stay the call for applications for use of the 98.1 MHz frequency, until such time as the Supreme Court of Canada rendered a decision on an application to be filed by Genex for leave to appeal the FCA decision of 1 September 2005.

    On October 31, Genex filed an application with the Supreme Court of Canada for leave to appeal the FCA decision of September 1.


    2006
    On June 13, Genex filed a motion with the Supreme Court of Canada requesting that its consideration of Genex’s application for leave to appeal be adjourned for one year. Genex stated that it had entered into an agreement with Radio Nord Communications inc., under which RNCI would apply for a new licence to continue the operation of CHOI-FM. It added that RNCI had in fact filed such an application with the Commission, and submitted that a certain period of time was required to allow for consideration of the application at a public hearing.On June 29, the Supreme Court of Canada agreed to adjourn, until 31 May 2007, its consideration of Genex’s application for leave to appeal.

    On October 20, the CRTC approved the application by Radio Nord Communications inc. for a broadcasting licence to carry on a French-language FM radio programming undertaking in Québec. In effect, RNCI would contine the operation of radio station CHOI-FM on the 98.1 MHz frequency, with an effective radiated power of 40,000 watts. The applicant proposed to offer an alternative rock music format that would target an audience of young adults 18 to 34 years of age. RNCI said the station would focus on local content and provide 100% local programming. The company emphasized that the news to be broadcast as part of CHOI-FM’s programming would be distinct from that of its station CKNU-FM Donnacona, so as to effectively meet the needs of the two different target audiences. The CHOI-FM newsroom would also remain independent and have two full-time journalists.

    2007
    Radio Nord became known as RNC Media.

    2010
    On February 12, the CRTC approved an application by RNC MEDIA Inc. to amend the licence for CHOI-FM in order to operate the station in a specialty FM format. Specifically, the licensee proposed to devote more than 50% of the broadcast week to spoken word programming. The station was offering an alternative rock music format. The licensee indicated that it would contribute significantly to the diversity of programming offered to the population of Québec, and that it would offer a new outlet for the broadcast of local news. The Commission notes that RNC MEDIA's application proposes a significant investment in local information, produced by and for the people in the Québec market, and that, according to RNC MEDIA, the information available to the audience in this market is currently deficient, particularly on evenings and weekends. The investment in local information proposed by RNC MEDIA would partially compensate for the recent cuts to local information made by the TQS network (now known as "V") and by CHRC, as well as the ceasing of publication of the daily newspaper Média Matin Québec after the labour dispute at the Journal de Québec was resolved. Further, the Commission notes that in a market study submitted by RNC Media, 89.8% of those polled listed information as a main interest. In addition, according to the study, 35-year-old audience members, who are the core of CHOI-FM's target audience, are the most interested in local news. The Commission notes that few commercial stations operate in a specialty format devoted to spoken word programming in the Québec market. CHOI-FM, by operating its station in a specialty FM format, would offer a new voice for broadcasting local information. In addition, CHOI-FM already boasts strong performance in terms of profitability and listenership. Moreover, the Commission notes that the station intends to offer some music-based programming on weekends, where the alternative rock genre would be emphasized and maintained, and that CHXX-FM offers a music format that is almost identical to that of CHOI-FM.

    Québec, Québec/Chaudière-Apalaches Quebec/Chaudiere-Apalaches

    CHOI-FM, Québec City, RNC Media

    1947
    CHRC Ltee (CHRC-AM) was granted a 250 watt FM licence.

    1949
    CHRC-FM opened on November 1. It broadcast on a frequency of 98.1 MHz and had a power of 250 watts.

    1957
    CHRC-FM was operating on 98.1 MHz with a power of 595 watts. CHRC Ltee was owned by H. Baribeau 39.6%, E. Fontaine 16.7%, E. Flynn 7.2%, J.H. Price 13.9%, G. Pratte 18.4%, H. LePage 4.1%, J. Grenier 0.1%.
    1965
    By this time, CHRC-FM was operating in stereo with an effective radiated power of 81,000 watts. The station offered programming independent of CHRC-AM between Noon and Midnight, Monday thru Saturday, and between 10:30 a.m. and Midnight on Sundays. Col. Harve Baribeau was president of CHRC Ltee.

    1968
    Henri LePage retired as general manager on December 31. He had managed CHRC-AM and FM since 1946. LePage would retain his financial interests in the stations and remain on the board of directors. He was also on the board of Television de Quebec (Canada) Ltee, licensee of CFCM-TV/CKMI-TV, and president of CKRS-AM-TV Jonquiere. Aurele Pelletier would become general manager of CHRC-AM-FM on January 1, 1969.

    Undated
    CHRC Ltee was purchased by Télé-Capitale Ltée.

    1976
    CHRC-FM became CHOI-FM.

    1978
    CHOI had its application for change of promise of performance denied. The CRTC accused the station of violating conditions of licence by implementing substantial changes in programming without approval. CHOI-FM was directed to comply with the authorized POP within 30 days.

    1979
    On August 7, approval was granted for the transfer of indirect control of (A) Enterprises Tele-Capitale Ltee (CKLM, CFCM-TV, CKMI-TV, CFER-TV and CFER-TV-1); (B) CHRC Ltee (CHRC-AM and CHOI-FM) – through the transfer of not less than 50.5% of Class B common voting shares of Tele-Capitale Ltee (the parent company) from Claude Pratte and one or both of the other major shareholders, Jevlam Inc. (J. A. Pouliot) and Baribeau & Fils Inc. (Baribeau family) to Corporation de Gestion La Verendrye. This was conditional on Corporation de Gestion LaVerendrye doing a public offering within 21 days to acquire Class A common non-voting shares of Tele-Capitale. J. Conrad Lavigne was among the new directors of Tele-Capitale. The company undertook to make the following improvements at CHRC/CHOI-FM: $650,000 for separate facilities, $100,000 to develop local talent over the next four years.

    Also approved on the same date, the transfer of CHRC and CHOI-FM from CHRC Ltee to Tele-Capitale Ltee and then on to Enterprises Tele-Capitale Ltee.

    1980
    J. Roger Hebert became vice president and general manager of CHOI-FM.

    In renewing CHOI's licence, the CRTC described the station as one of the best private French-language FM stations in Quebec.

    1985
    Capital Radio Broadcasting Operations Inc. purchased CHRC and CHOI-FM from Télé-Capitale Inc. (formerly Télé-Capitale Ltée).

    1986
    The CRTC told CHOI that its licence may be in jeopardy if deviations from its Promise of Performance continued. The station was called to a public hearing because of complaints by CJMF-FM. CHOI admitted programming had been altered during the spring of 1986 BBM survey. The station also accused CJMF of similar failings but the Commission rejected CHOI's attempts to justify its actions. Unintelligible logger tapes were also an issue. CHOI was ordered to confirm by February 15, 1987, that its logger tape equipment was in place and operating.

    1995
    Télémédia Communications Inc. purchased CHOI-FM from Les Entreprises de Radiodiffusion de la Capitale Inc. Télémédia already owned an FM station in the city (CITF) so had to sell CHOI to a third party.

    1997
    Telemedia announced it had sold 80% of CHOI-FM to Genex Communications, 60% owned by Patrice Demers and 20% by Les Enterprises Octave (controlled by Jean Morin). Telmedia would finance the purchase but said if future operating losses force it to take back the station, it would immediately put it up for sale again. Telemedia had acquired CHOI with CHRC but was told to sell the FM because it already owned CITF-FM in Quebec City.

    The CRTC approved the purchase of CHOI-FM by Genex Communications inc. from Les Entreprises de Radiodiffusion de la Capitale inc. (Télémédia). Télémédia would continue to hold a 20% interest.

    1998
    CHOI was given approval to decrease effective radiated power from 81,000 to 40,000 watts and to relocate the transmitter to a site 1.4 kilometres from the current site.

    2004
    On July 13, the CRTC decided not to renew the licence of CHOI-FM and issued a call for broadcasting licences to carry on a new French-language FM station in Québec. Since Genex acquired CHOI-FM in 1997, the programming on the station had been the subject of numerous complaints with respect to the conduct of the hosts and the spoken word content that aired, including offensive comments, personal attacks and harassment. The Commission found that on numerous occasions, Genex had failed to comply with the Radio Regulations 1986 as well as CHOI’s Code of Ethics. The station was ordered to be off the air by August 31, the expiry date of the existing licence. The CRTC issued a call for applications for a broadcasting licence to carry on a French-language radio station.

    On August 26, the Federal Court of Appeal authorized Genex to continue operating CHOI-FM under the same terms and conditions as those specified in the licence then in effect, and directed the CRTC to stay the call for applications for a new broadcasting licence to operate on the 98.1 MHz frequency in Québec. The stay was to remain in effect until the FCA rendered its final judgment on the merits in the matter of the appeal filed by Genex from Decision 2004-271.

    2005
    On September 14, the CRTC issued a Broadcasting Public Notice in which it announced that the call for applications would be restricted to those that proposed to use frequencies other than 98.1 MHz.

    The Federal Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal by Genex on September 1.
    On September 23, the Federal Court of Appeal extended the period during which Genex was permitted to continue operating CHOI-FM under the same terms and conditions as those specified in its previous licence, and extended its order to stay the call for applications for use of the 98.1 MHz frequency, until such time as the Supreme Court of Canada rendered a decision on an application to be filed by Genex for leave to appeal the FCA decision of 1 September 2005.

    On October 31, Genex filed an application with the Supreme Court of Canada for leave to appeal the FCA decision of September 1.


    2006
    On June 13, Genex filed a motion with the Supreme Court of Canada requesting that its consideration of Genex’s application for leave to appeal be adjourned for one year. Genex stated that it had entered into an agreement with Radio Nord Communications inc., under which RNCI would apply for a new licence to continue the operation of CHOI-FM. It added that RNCI had in fact filed such an application with the Commission, and submitted that a certain period of time was required to allow for consideration of the application at a public hearing.On June 29, the Supreme Court of Canada agreed to adjourn, until 31 May 2007, its consideration of Genex’s application for leave to appeal.

    On October 20, the CRTC approved the application by Radio Nord Communications inc. for a broadcasting licence to carry on a French-language FM radio programming undertaking in Québec. In effect, RNCI would contine the operation of radio station CHOI-FM on the 98.1 MHz frequency, with an effective radiated power of 40,000 watts. The applicant proposed to offer an alternative rock music format that would target an audience of young adults 18 to 34 years of age. RNCI said the station would focus on local content and provide 100% local programming. The company emphasized that the news to be broadcast as part of CHOI-FM’s programming would be distinct from that of its station CKNU-FM Donnacona, so as to effectively meet the needs of the two different target audiences. The CHOI-FM newsroom would also remain independent and have two full-time journalists.

    2007
    Radio Nord became known as RNC Media.

    2010
    On February 12, the CRTC approved an application by RNC MEDIA Inc. to amend the licence for CHOI-FM in order to operate the station in a specialty FM format. Specifically, the licensee proposed to devote more than 50% of the broadcast week to spoken word programming. The station was offering an alternative rock music format. The licensee indicated that it would contribute significantly to the diversity of programming offered to the population of Québec, and that it would offer a new outlet for the broadcast of local news. The Commission notes that RNC MEDIA's application proposes a significant investment in local information, produced by and for the people in the Québec market, and that, according to RNC MEDIA, the information available to the audience in this market is currently deficient, particularly on evenings and weekends. The investment in local information proposed by RNC MEDIA would partially compensate for the recent cuts to local information made by the TQS network (now known as "V") and by CHRC, as well as the ceasing of publication of the daily newspaper Média Matin Québec after the labour dispute at the Journal de Québec was resolved. Further, the Commission notes that in a market study submitted by RNC Media, 89.8% of those polled listed information as a main interest. In addition, according to the study, 35-year-old audience members, who are the core of CHOI-FM's target audience, are the most interested in local news. The Commission notes that few commercial stations operate in a specialty format devoted to spoken word programming in the Québec market. CHOI-FM, by operating its station in a specialty FM format, would offer a new voice for broadcasting local information. In addition, CHOI-FM already boasts strong performance in terms of profitability and listenership. Moreover, the Commission notes that the station intends to offer some music-based programming on weekends, where the alternative rock genre would be emphasized and maintained, and that CHXX-FM offers a music format that is almost identical to that of CHOI-FM.
