Last week, Astral Media began testing its new 99.7 CJOT in Ottawa, Ontario with what appears to be its future Adult Contemporary format. Astral Media registered Love997.com and OttawasLove.com in addition to the Ottawa997.com that the station is using to promote its pending launch. The new station will be in direct competition to its neighbor on the dial CTV Globemedia’s “Majic 100.3” CJMJ.
DigitalHome.ca reports that the official launch of the station will be on May 27.
