On October 28, 2011, Maritime Broadcasting System Ltd. applied to the CRTC to operate a new country music FM radio station at Miramichi, New Brunswick. If approved, the new station will operate at 102.5 MHz.[1]

Unionized staff at three MBS stations in Saint John, CFBC, CIOK K-100, CJYC Big John FM, went on strike in June 2012, a strike that dragged on into the fall triggering calls for a boycott of the station’s advertisers [2] and leading strikers to set up an internet radio station.[3]
