Radio Humsafar 1610 AM (CHRN) is a multilingual radio channel from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The station operates at 1610 kHz on the AM band. The radio station is the flagship of Radio Humsafar, a global radio network serving the South Asian diaspora. The Greater Montreal area now has two Radio Humsafar stations, CHRN and CJLV. On May 16, 2014, CRTC approved the Radio Humsafar station. AM station operates with a universal transmitter power of 1,000 watts. From 2002 until 2009, CJWI operated on the 1610 frequency before switching to the 1410 kHz band.
On March 16, 2011, Radio Humsafar submitted a request for a station that would broadcast at 1400 kHz with a power of 1,000 watts. Later, for an unknown reason, AM station withdrew this application. As a result, only two full-power stations in North America use the 1610 frequency, one of which is Radio Humsafar and the other CHHA. The channel broadcasting format includes entertainment, information, news, sports, weather updates, traffic reports, music, debates, and interviews. Besides this, AM channels transmit online via live streaming worldwide on the radio website.
