CHBB-FM & CHRH-FM, "VOBB - The Voice of Bonne Bay", is a Canadian radio station, which broadcasts a community radio format on the frequency 95.9 FM in Norris Point, Newfoundland and Labrador.

Owned by the Bonne Bay Cottage Hospital Heritage Corporation, the station received CRTC approval on November 4, 2009.[1]

On September 12, 2012, Bonne Bay Cottage Hospital Heritage Corporation received CRTC approval to add a new FM transmitter at Rocky Harbour, Newfoundland and Labrador, which will operate on 98.1 MHz. [2] Bonne Bay stated that the topography of the region interferes with its signal in Rocky Harbour and that the addition of a rebroadcasting transmitter is necessary for it to adequately serve that community.
