Kristiansund is municipality on the western coast of Norway in the Nordmøre district of Møre og Romsdal county. The administrative center of the municipality is the town of Kristiansund, the major town for the whole Nordmøre region. Other notable settlements in the municipality include the villages of Kvalvåg, Nedre Frei; the 87-square-kilometre municipality is the 388th largest by area out of the 422 municipalities in Norway. Kristiansund is the 47th most populous municipality in Norway with a population of 24,300; the municipality's population density is 282.1 inhabitants per square kilometre and its population has increased by 7.2% over the last decade. The parish of Christianssund was established as a municipality on 1 January 1838; the small island municipality included just the town of Christianssund and its immediate surrounding area. During the 1960s, there were many municipal mergers across Norway due to the work of the Schei Committee. On 1 January 1964, Kristiansund Municipality was merged with the tiny Grip Municipality to the northwest and the Dale area of Bremsnes Municipality on Nordlandet island.

The neighboring Frei Municipality was merged with Kristiansund on 1 January 2008 creating a much larger Kristiansund Municipality. The municipality is named after the town of Kristiansund, it was spelled Christianssund. The name comes from the Danish-Norwegian King Christian VI who founded the town in 1742; the last element of the name, means "strait". The old name of the town/village was Fosna or Fosen which means "hiding place", it was often named Lille Fosen to distinguish it from the island Storfosna in Ørland. Before 1877, the name was spelled Christianssund, from 1877 to 1888 it was spelled Kristianssund, since 1889 it has had its present spelling, Kristiansund. Before the introduction of postal codes in Norway in 1968, it was easy to confuse the name Kristiansund with Kristiansand in the south, it was therefore obligatory to always add an N to an S to Kristiansand. This is pretty much still practiced and occurs in some other contexts than postal addresses; the coat of arms was granted on 27 June 1742.

The arms were granted by King Christian VI and are described as a silver or white river flowing from a cliff, with salmon jumping upwards on a blue background. The waterfall may be the Lille Fosen waterfall near the town. There are two myths as to; the first one is. The other myth concerning the coat of arms is that there was a mix up, between Kristiansund's and Molde's intended shield; the Dano-Norwegian government officials in charge of the giving of the coats, had a party to remember the momentous occasion and became too drunk and hungover to remember, which, so Molde got the coat with a whale and Kristiansund got the waterfall The Church of Norway has three parishes within the municipality of Kristiansund. It is part of the Ytre Nordmøre prosti in the Diocese of Møre. St. Eystein Catholic Church is the only Catholic church in Kristiansund; the municipality borders Smøla Municipality and Aure Municipality to the northeast, Tingvoll Municipality to the east, Gjemnes Municipality to the south, Averøy Municipality to the southwest.

The small Grip archipelago is located in the northwestern part of the municipality. The municipality is surrounded by the Freifjorden and Kvernesfjorden with the open sea to the northwest. Kristiansund is built with many smaller islands; the island of Nordlandet, is the second largest island and the site of the local airport, Kristiansund Airport, Kvernberget. Kirkelandet, third in size is made up of two areas Gomalandet. In the local dialect, Kirkelandet is pronounced "Kirklandet", without the middle e; the smallest island is Innlandet. The largest island in the municipality is Frei, part of the old Frei Municipality, merged into Kristiansund on 1 January 2008; the highest point of the municipality is located on Frei island, Freikollen at a height of 629 metres. The islands of Grip, located northwest of Kristiansund are a part of the municipality. Grip Municipality was Norway's smallest municipality, one of the most remote until it merged with Kristiansund in 1964. Today the island of Grip holds status as a deserted fishing village, but in the summer season it is a popular tourist attraction due to the special location and architecture.

Grip Stave Church, the second smallest stave church of Norway, is located at Grip. It is where Grip Lighthouse is located. Kristiansund includes the town of Kristiansund, one of the most densely populated cities of Norway, having what is arguably the country's most urban small city centre, due to the small size of the islands on which it is built and the constricted central harbour/town area of Kirkelandet.

The station has a rebroadcast transmitter in Arnprior, that operated on 104.7 FM. That transmitter was certified by Industry Canada Spectrum Management to move to 107.7 FM in 2007, due to potential broadcast interference from the FM conversion of CJRC in Gatineau. The switch in frequency took place in the spring of 2007. In October 2008, power was increased on CHMY-FM-1, the transmitter site was relocated from the Arnprior water tower to the Glentel site at Mount Pakenham. On April 2, 2014, the CRTC approved My Broadcasting's application for a new English-language station in Arnprior, which will operate at 107.7 MHz, replacing rebroadcaster CHMY-FM-1 at that frequency.

On the same date, the CRTC denied My Broadcasting's application for a new station in Carleton Place, which would have broadcast at 97.5 MHz. On October 28, 2010, My Broadcasting applied to increase the effected radiated power for CHMY-FM.

Dual slalom

Dual slalom is an older mountain bike racing discipline similar to 4X racing. It consists of two racers racing two identical tracks next to each other down a slope; the courses are short. It is filled with tabletop jumps and bermed turns. Both riders' times are taken and they switch tracks for another round, whereafter the combined times are counted and slowest rider is eliminated; the winner moves on to the next round. The first dual slalom race occurred at Mammoth Mountain, California, in 1987. In the first few heats, the fastest riders were pitted against the slowest, thus eliminating the slowest riders immediately. Greg Herbold won the 1988 inaugural Dual Slalom. In 1988, Jimmy Deaton and John Tomac were the last male riders to compete, with Tomac emerging as the winner. 2012 Sea Otter Classic Dual Slalom video
