CBY is a clear-channel station broadcasting at 990 kHz (AM) from Corner Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador, using a power of 10,000 watts. Owned by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, it is the main outlet for the CBC's Radio One network in western Newfoundland.

CBY's daytime signal covers most of Western Newfoundland. At night, it covers most of Eastern North America. Nine FM rebroadcasters provide additional coverage throughout Western Newfoundland and the Northern Peninsula.

History

The station was launched in 1943 as VOWN (Voice Of Western Newfoundland) on 790 AM, by the Broadcasting Corporation of Newfoundland, the pre-Confederation public broadcaster. On March 31, 1949, BCN was absorbed by the CBC when Newfoundland joined Canada, and adopted its current call sign. CBY moved to 990 in 1963.

CBNA St. Anthony signed on the air on August 2, 1969 at 600 kHz.

On October 19, 2012, CBY made its final broadcast from its longtime studios of 53 years on Premier Drive in Corner Brook after the announcement of budget cuts by the federal government. The station is now located in the Valley Mall, a decision that drew much criticism mostly because of the size of the new studios. The former CBC location was a building, owned and operated by the CBC.

The call sign CBY was previously used by a CBL rebroadcaster in Toronto, Ontario from 1938–1943.

Local programming

CBY produces its own local morning show, The West Coast Morning Show with Bernice Hillier and Brian McHugh. The station otherwise simulcasts CBN in St. John's during the network's local programming blocks, with some exceptions (i.e., commercials).

On May 27, 1986, the CRTC approved the CBC's application to change CBNE from 1370 to 1420 kHz.[4] CBNE was later converted to 91.9 MHz on February 15, 1989.

On February 5, 2018, the CRTC approved the CBC's application to convert CBNA 600 to 100.3 MHz with an effective radiated power of 4,500 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of the antenna above average terrain of 173 metres). The licensee also stated that the new FM transmitter will reach a greater population than the existing AM signal.[5]
