Description:
CBY is a local division of the CBC Radio One radio station, broadcasting from Corner Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador. It broadcasts at 990 kHz (AM) as a clear-channel station, using a power of 10,000 watts. Rebroadcaster CBNA St. Anthony, also using 10,000 watts, covers much of Northern Newfoundland on 600 kHz. FM rebroadcasters provide additional coverage throughout Western Newfoundland.

History

The station was launched in 1943 as VOWN on AM 790, 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 began broadcasting in 1968.

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

Local programming

CBY produces its own local morning show, The West Coast Morning Show with host Dorothy King. The station otherwise broadcasts programming from CBN in St. John's during the network's local programming blocks.
