CRN - PEGGY to go Country

Never mind those CJOB 680 simulcast rumours, it turns out that CFPG 99.1 in Winnipeg will be going Country on December 27th:

I figure that there will be 8 Country stations to choose from in and around the Winnipeg region now:

CFRY - 920 - Portage
CKMW - 88.9 - Winkler (COUNTRY 88)
CHPO - 93.1 - Portage (COUNTRY 93.1)
CFPG - 99.1 - Winnipeg (COUNTRY 99)
CFQX - 104.1 - Selkirk (QX 104)
CIUR - 104.7 -Winnipeg (NOW COUNTRY)
CICY - 105.5 - Selkirk (NCI) (Indigenous.....but primarily Country)
CJXR - 107.7 - Steinbach (COUNTRY 107.7)

My personal opinion is that Corus will not simulcast CJOB, CHED or CKNW on FM until the CHQR matter is settled with the CRTC.

But, if it works out in Corus' favour, then FM simulcasts are quite likely assuming there is an available "not too profitable" FM.
