CRTC actually gets something right!

102.1 the Edge and The Dean Blundell Show were vindicated, again, last week – this time by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC).  The 8 July ruling found that the 20 March 2009 iteration of the radio morning show,

did not fail to meet the objective of the Act that programming be of a high standard.

This comes after already having been decided as such by the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council (CBSC) last February.

The CRTC concluded that,

…there was no violation of established broadcast standards. Rather, response to this program is clearly a matter of taste, one best managed by audiences exercising choice.

Yes! Yes, yes yes! Finally!

I am really not a fan of the CRTC.  Really not. But they got it right this time.

If you do not like what is playing on the radio, turn it off!
