CFAB is a country format radio station located in Windsor, NS. The station airs a mix of locally produced programming and simulcasting of its sister station CKEN from Kentville.

History[edit]

The station was launched on November 13, 1945 by Evangeline Broadcasting, and was acquired by Annapolis Valley Radio, which would eventually become the Maritime Broadcasting System, in 1979.

The station was given partial authorization by the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission to convert to the FM band in 2006,[1] contingent on choosing a different frequency than its original application. Due to delays in locating a suitable frequency, this FM conversion has not yet taken place as of 2010. On November 20, 2008, the Commission approves an application by Maritime Broadcasting System Limited (Maritime) for an extension, until November 27, 2009.[2]

Announcers include:

Morning Show Host: Erin Sullivan
