Bid To Take Control Of Jazz.FM

Daughter of broadcast mogul Allan Slaight makes bid to gain control of troubled JAZZ.FM

The daughter of Canadian billionaire Allan Slaight is behind a major push to gain control of JAZZ.FM, a Toronto radio station mired in scandal.

In a three-page letter sent to the station’s board of directors Aug. 17, Marie Slaight, a poet, author and director of an arts production company in Australia, says the only solution to the station’s problems is to “dissolve the board in its entirety” to pave the way for a new institutional culture.

It's not clear to me how one takes over a non-profit radio station.  Who actually owns the shares of the corporation?
