Rogers Communications (TSX:RCI) says it’s launching an all-news radio station in Ottawa next week.
The media company says 1310 News will replace Oldies 1310 and will provide news, traffic, weather, sports, business and entertainment reports.
“We're delighted to have the opportunity to deliver comprehensive 24/7 news coverage to the residents of Ottawa and the Valley,” said station manager Scott Parsons in a statement.
The new station is expected to compete with news-talk station CFRA, which is owned by CTVglobemedia.
Rogers Broadcasting says it has 53 AM and FM radio stations across the country.
