CORUS APPLIES TO CRTC FOR LOCAL TV LICENSE

Corus Entertainment has applied to the CRTC for a license to start a network of local TV stations.

The local TV network would have stations in 64 Canadian cities and programming would focus on weather, road reports and local news.

Corus isn't exactly known for their commitment to excellent programming. They put Mojo Radio on the air, then gradually fired most of the announcers. Corus stations tend to have a lot of automation and voice tracking, if not more than at least the same amount as stations owned by other companies.

In college, one of my teachers was fond of saying, "What are you gonna do, it's Corus."
