CIBM-FM, FM 107 CIBM, Rivière-du-Loup

CIBM-FM Mont-Bleu Ltée.

CIBM-FM Mont-Bleu Ltée.

CHGB-FM La  Pocatière signed on the air. It broadcast on 102.9 MHz and was co-owned with CHGB-AM.



Radio La Pocatiere Ltee. purchased CHGB-AM and FM.



When CHGB-FM’s licence was renewed, it was noted that the station was a full-time rebroadcaster of CBV-FM in Quebec City (Radio-Canada FM network).



CHGB-FM was authorized to move its transmitter from La Pocatiere to Riviere-du-Loup (Mont-Blue).



On August 18, Radio La Pocatiere Ltee was authorized to change CHGB-FM’s frequency from 102.9 MHz to 107.1 MHz. This followed a December 7, 1981 CRTC decision in which the station was directed to seek an alternate frequency.



On November 18, CHGB-FM began transmitting from Rivière-du-Loup (Mont-Bleu). The station had been licenced to La  Pocatière.



On January 29, CHGB-FM was authorized to disaffiliate from the Radio-Canada FM network. It had been a full-time rebroadcaster of CBV-FM in Quebec City. It would now broadcast part-time from studios in both Riviere-du-Loup and La Pocatiere, and part-time from either CITE-FM Montreal or CITF-FM Quebec, depending on the outcome of ongoing negotiations. CJBR-FM Rimouski already provided the Radio-Canada FM service to much of CHGB-FM’s coverage area. CHGB was negotiating with Radio-Canada to continue operating the its old transmitter at La Pocatiere as an R-C affiliate. The CRTC reminded CHGB that the 1981 decision that granted the station a move of transmitter site from La Pocatiere to Riviere-du-Loup (Mont Bleu), the La Pocatiere transmitter was to cease operations.

At the same hearing, CHGB also presented an application for a rebroadcast transmitter at Riviere-du-Loup, operating on 98.7 MHz with an effective radiated power of 8.6 watts. It would rectify problems associated with the reception of CHGB’s main transmitter at Mont Bleu and provide a top quality FM stereo signal in some low-lying areas of Riviere-du-Loup, in particular the Saint-Patrice district. The application was put on hold while the Department of Communications studied the proposal.


The CRTC denied CIBM's application to change its musical format from Group I to Group IV. The Commission instead, approved the application for a new station in the market (CION-FM).


CIBM had its licence renewed to August 31, 1994. Approved - the station's request to increase local programming to 83 and a half hours per week from 50 hours and the simulcasting of the two and a half hour morning program with CJFP Riviere-du-Loup and CHGB La Pocatiere, Monday through Friday. Its request to simulcast Telemedia Network news was turned down.


CIBM's application for a rebroadcast transmitter at Edmundston, N.B. was turned down because of its potential adverse impact on the area's advertising base.


On April 21 the CRTC renewed CIBM-FM's licence until August 31, 2013. The renewal included rebroadcast transmitters CIBM-FM-1 Riviere-du-Loup, CIBM-FM-2 Trois-Pistoles, CIBM-FM-3 Sully and CIBM-FM-4 Saint-Juste-du-Lac.
