1978

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation opened CBZ-FM on January 30. It operated on a frequency of 101.5 MHz with 100,000 watts of effective radiated power. CBZ-FM was a rebroadcaster of CBH-FM Halifax.

 

1984

The FM Stereo network went to 24 hour a day operation February 6.

1997

The CBC Stereo network was renamed "CBC Radio Two" on September 1.

 

2001

On July 26, CBZ-FM was authorized to decrease effective radiated power from 100,000 watts to 81,000 watts and to increase antenna height.

 

2013

On December 5, the CRTC gave approval to the CBC to introduce advertising on the Radio 2 and Espace Musique networks. Advertising would be limited to four minutes every hour. The CBC would need to seek permission to continue airing commercials on the two networks after three years.

2016

On April 21, the CBC received CRTC approval to increase the power of CBZ 101.5 from 80,000 to 88,960 watts (average and maximum ERP). Antenna height would be lowered from 395 to 374.6 metres (EHAAT).

On August 31, the CRTC denied the CBC’s application to continue commercial advertising on Radio 2 and ICI Musique beyond the initial three-year licence amendment. The CRTC found that CBC had failed to maintain satisfactory investment in radio and failed to meet ad revenue projections.

2017

Radio 2 became CBC Music.

CRTC website to Wikipedia, and others, are now regularly providing new information in these areas.
