Description:
CBI is a Canadian radio station. It is the CBC Radio One affiliate in Sydney, Nova Scotia, broadcasting at 1140 KHz on the AM dial. The station serves all of Cape Breton Island by operating a network of FM rebroadcasters.

History

CBI was launched on November 1, 1948, at AM 1570. Prior to its launch, CBC Radio programming was aired by private affiliate CJCB 1270 and its shortwave relay CJCX-SW 6010 kHz (in the 49m band). In 1954, CBI moved to AM 1140.

On July 9, 2007 CBI was given approval by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to convert the station to the FM band at 97.1 MHz. When the new FM station is in operation, the old AM station will be shutdown. According to Industry Canada, the callsign for the new FM station will be CBIT-FM. In a license renewal submission to the CRTC in June 2011, CBC states that it does not have the resources to implement the transmitter before the authorization lapses.

Local programming

The station's local programs are Information Morning in the mornings and Main Street in the afternoons. Although both programs have the same name as their mainland counterparts in Halifax, they are distinct programs produced in Sydney.
