CBCT-FM is a Canadian radio station. It is the CBC Radio One affiliate for all of Prince Edward Island, with studios in Charlottetown, broadcasting at 96.1 on the FM dial.



CBCT-FM was launched in 1977 on 96.9 FM. Prior to its launch, CBC Radio programming aired on private affiliate CFCY. In 1985, CBCT's frequency was changed to 96.1 FM. [1] The signal is broadcast from a CBC-owned transmitting tower on Strathgartney Hill in Churchill, 15 km west of Charlottetown.

In 2007, the station received approval from the CRTC to add rebroadcasters to enhance coverage across PEI.
