CBOX-FM is a Canadian radio station. It broadcasts the Société Radio-Canada's Ici Musique network at 102.5 FM in Ottawa, Ontario. CBOX's studios are located in the CBC Ottawa Broadcast Centre on Sparks Street, while its transmitter is located in Camp Fortune, Quebec.
This station signed on for the first time on September 12, 1974, the same day Radio-Canada launched a separate FM service. It was formerly known as CBOF-FM until 1991, when sister station CBOF converted to the FM dial.
As of April 2014, the only local programme at CBOX-FM is Beau temps, mauvais temps, hosted by Jhade Montpetit, on weekday mornings. This program — which airs on every station belonging to the Ici Musique network outside Montreal with different hosts— will be cancelled in June due to cuts to the 2014-2015 CBC/Radio-Canada budget.
