CBCS-FM is a Canadian radio station. It is the CBC Radio One station in Sudbury, Ontario, broadcasting at 99.9 FM, and serves all of Northeastern Ontario through its network of relay transmitters.

History

The station was launched in 1978 on FM 99.9. Prior to its launch, CBC Radio programming aired on private affiliate CKSO.

The CRTC decision authorizing the launch of CBCS in fact encouraged, but did not direct, the CBC to retain an AM frequency for CBC Radio, and to reserve CBCS for its CBC Stereo network. [ [http://www.broadcasting-history.ca/listings_and_histories/radio/histories.php?id=283&historyID=308 CBCS History at Canadian Communications Foundation] ] However, the station launched in 1978 as an affiliate of the talk network after the CBC was unable to negotiate an agreement with Cambrian Broadcasting to directly acquire CKSO.

CBC Radio Two service was not available in the city until the launch of CBBS-FM in 2001, although from 1984 to 1991 the CBC held an unused license to launch that station. [ [http://www.crtc.gc.ca/archive/ENG/Decisions/1984/DB84-906.HTM CRTC Decision 84-906] ]

Local programming

The station's local programs are "Morning North", hosted by Markus Schwabe, in the morning and "Points North", hosted by Dan Lessard, in the afternoon.

In the CBC's proposed new regional programming strategy released in 2005, North Bay is scheduled to receive its own local news bureau, although North Bay would continue to receive CBCS' local programming apart from news updates.
