CKLN out, Radio Regent in.

CKLN Radio Inc is dissolving but your favourite shows and hosts are moving to Radio Regent
Tuesday, 20 December 2011 22:00
On December 14, 2011, the courts granted CKLN Radio Incorporated's request to dissolve the corporation and also dismissed a motion by Mary Young for a derivative action, ordering Ms. Young to pay CKLN $10,000 in costs. This request for dissolution was made following a vote at our October 11, 2011 Special General Meeting in which the membership overwhelmingly approved a motion to seek dissolution. On December 26, 2011, our contract with Regent Park Focus ends and will cease broadcasting on the internet. However, Regent Park Focus Youth Media Arts Centre has announced that they will be launching a new internet radio service, Radio Regent, on January 1, 2012.
While Radio Regent is unaffiliated with CKLN Radio Incorporated and will be managed by Regent Park Focus, volunteers currently at CKLN have been invited to join the new service so many of your favourite shows and personalities will be on the Radio Regent program schedule. The Radio Regent livestream is currently being mirrored on the website, however, the livestream is not affiliated with CKLN Radio Incorporated and CKLN Radio Incorporated is not responsible for it or the programming it carries.

We'd like to thank everyone who has been a part of or supported CKLN over the past three decades and we deeply regret that the CKLN story is coming to the end. Over the years CKLN 88.1 has provided an outlet to up and coming, cutting edge voices that could not be heard elsewhere and provided Toronto with its first and often only exposure to a variety of musical and artistic forms. While the past few years have been difficult we believe that on balance, CKLN has been a positive force in Toronto and in radio.
