On August 30, 2011, the CBC has applied to close AM station CBGA-1, to be replaced with transmitters in the following communities: [2] [3]

On October 28, 2011, the CRTC approved the CBC's application. After the launch of these new FM transmitters, CBGA-1 will leave the air.[4] The AM station mainly served listeners on the Quebec side of Chaleur Bay; listeners in the Bathurst area already receive Première programming from CBAF-FM-2 105.7 in Allardville, a repeater of CBAF-FM Moncton.

On January 4, 2013, the CBC filed an application to convert CBGA-6 Murdochville from 1270 kHz to 97.7 MHz. [5] This application was approved by the CRTC on April 11, 2013.
