CBC Radio has to take its Morning Edition show in Kitchener-Waterloo off air while it waits for CRTC approval.

CBC filed its application for the Waterloo Region service with the CRTC in June 2012, but it did not recieve permission to broadcast. The show had launched just over a month ago and was the first new station the CBC had opened in Ontario in the last 40 years.

The broadcaster called it an "unfortunate oversight."

"Upon learning of the situation we moved quickly to rectify it and we hope to be back on the air soon," CBC said in a news release. 

Listeners in the Waterloo Region will continue to be able to hear the show online.
