Legal Question

I know there are rules/regulations and license conditions that stipulate where a studio can be, details about programming and such.. but what about administrative functions?

Lets say for instance, your Arctice Radio in Manitoba or another small company with a few.. 3 to 6 or so stations somewhat close together and you wanted to create "operational efficencies".

Is it legal in Canada to have the person who enters orders and does programming logs do it for an entire companie s group of stations from one location?

Do any of the smaller groups actually do something like this? I'm sure with the big groups, like Virgin rADIO and 2day FM and stuff like that.. theres a group music or program director but the amount of business they do would make it hard to hand off some administrative duties remotely.

Yes.

They sure do. All the MyFM's run the same playlist. Vista does this within the brands as well.
