On August 28, the CRTC approved the transfer effective control of Mutual Broadcasting Canada Limited, licensee of CKMF-FM and CJMS Montreal, CHIK-FM and CJRP Quebec City, CJTR Trois-Rivières, CJRC Gatineau and of the Radiomutuel network, through the transfer of all of the issued and outstanding shares from Radiomutuel Inc., the parent company of Mutual Broadcasting Canada Limited, to Communications Radiomutuel Inc., a corporation ultimately controlled by Messrs. Normand Beauchamp and Paul-Emile Beaulne.
On September 30, Telemedia Communications and Radiomutuel merged their AM operations in Quebec, closing six stations. The two combined because they could no longer afford to compete with each other. The merger is subject to CRTC approval, but the six stations left the air on this date and the licenses were turned in to the commission. The merged company is called RadioMedia. The two companys still run their FM stations separately.
The CRTC revoked the licences for the six stations (including CJRP Québec City) on November 2, 1994.
