CHRN is a multilingual radio station which will operate at 1610 KHz/ AM in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The station will serve as a flagship for Radio Humsafar, an international radio network serving the South Asian diaspora. CHRN is Radio Humsafar's second radio station in the Greater Montreal area, as it also owns CJLV 1570 AM.
Radio Humsafar received approval for the station from the CRTC on May 16, 2014. The station will operate at 1610 kHz with a universal transmitter power of 1,000 watts. The 1610 frequency was previously occupied by CJWI from 2002 until 2009, when it relocated to 1410 kHz.
Radio Humsafar previously applied for a station on March 16, 2011, which would have broadcast at 1400 kHz with a power of 1,000 watts; this application was later withdrawn, for unknown reasons, though a station at this position would have been first-adjacent to CJWI at 1410 kHz, which would have created interference issues.
