Iceberg Radio is a Canadian Internet radio service, which provides more than 100 channels of streaming audio. Founded in 1997 by John Walters and DJ Hedley Jones as the Virtual Canadian Broadcast Network, in 1999, it became Iceberg Media.com Inc.
The service is currently owned and operated by Astral Media. It was one of two properties, along with an interest in Sirius Canada, to remain under the Slaight Communications' ownership, following the October 2007 sale of its radio and television stations to Astral Media. It has since moved to the Astral Media family.
Originally, Slaight also programmed an adult album alternative channel on Sirius Satellite Radio channel 85, branded as Iceberg 85. The channel originally aired on Sirius 95, but moved to 85 in early June 2008. This station continues under the Iceberg branding.
Iceberg radio is now part of the Astral Media group. The site continues to function, but is now fed through an American service Accuradio. Servers are located in Troy NY and VA.
