CBVE-FM is a Canadian radio station, which broadcasts the programming of the CBC Radio One network at 104.7 FM in Quebec City. The station's main transmitter for Quebec City is located at Mount Bélair.

Its studios, along with those of Radio-Canada are located on rue St-Jean in Quebec City ; master control is at the Canadian Broadcasting Centre in Toronto.

CBVE-FM is the originating station for all of the CBC Radio One transmitters in Quebec outside of Montreal and the Outaouais. Together, they are known as the Quebec Community Network, with a special mandate to provide service to the province's anglophone minority. Most of the station's operations are in Quebec City.

History[edit]

The station was launched in 1976. Prior to its launch, CBC Radio programming was aired on private affiliate CFOM 1340 on the AM band. Following CFOM's shutdown as a commercial station in late 1975, the CBC directly acquired the station and kept it in operation until the FM signal was launched.

The station was originally a rebroadcaster of CBM in Montreal. In 1994, however, it was granted a separate license. At the same time, all but one of CBM's rebroadcasters were transferred to CBVE.[1]

Local programming[edit]

The station's local programs are Quebec AM, hosted by Susan Campbell, in the mornings and Breakaway, hosted by Jacquie Czernin, in the afternoons. The rest of the station's schedule is a simulcast of CBME.

An hour of Quebec AM is also heard on CBC North radio stations in the Nunavik region of northern Quebec.
