History

CBC Radio programming first aired in Fredericton on private affiliate CFNB 550.

CBC's own station launched on March 4, 1964 as CBZ on 970 in the AM band. Provincial Premier Louis Robichaud and Don Messer's troupe were on hand for the opening ceremonies which originated from the Lord Beaverbrook Hotel.[1]

In 2004, CBZ moved to the FM band on 99.5 MHz. [2] The call sign was changed to CBZF-FM as CBZ-FM was already used by the Radio 2 sister station.

Local Programming

CBZF-FM currently produces a local morning news and current-affairs program, Information Morning, which airs weekdays from 6:00 a.m to 8:37 a.m. on CBZF-FM.
