CBT is a clear-channel radio station broadcasting at 540 kHz (AM) from Grand Falls-Windsor, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, and is the local Radio One station of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

History[edit]

CBT headquarters

The station was launched in 1949 on AM 1350 after the Broadcasting Corporation of Newfoundland, the pre-Confederation public broadcaster, was absorbed by the CBC when Newfoundland joined Canada. The frequency was changed to 990 in 1956, and then to 540 in 1963 (with 990 being reassigned to CBY Corner Brook).

Local programming[edit]

CBT carries CBG Gander's local morning show, The Central Morning Show with host Leigh Anne Power. The Grand Falls-Windsor station, which previously co-produced the program, now contributes reports, with local mobile reporter Kelly Bragg acting as a de facto co-host. The station otherwise broadcasts programming from CBN in St. John's during the network's local programming blocks.
