Montreal announced today that CH Montreal will relaunch under its original
call letters, CJNT Montreal, and with a new on-air visual identity beginning
September 2007. As CJNT Montreal, the station will continue to provide
Montreal with the city's most robust multicultural programming schedule.
CJNT Montreal will continue to serve a variety of diverse cultures with
programs directed to over 15 distinct ethnic groups in as many different
languages over the course of each year.
"This station remains committed to serving the variety of ethnic groups
that make up the fabric of Montreal's diverse culture," said Federigi. "We are
extremely excited about the renewed energy that this fresh, new look will
bring in our drive to deliver the most extensive multicultural programming
slate in our community."
Nationally, the network currently known as CH will be rebranded under the
E! banner beginning this fall. The schedule in Montreal will continue to
feature several primetime network programs. Schedule details will be available
in June 2007.
