Collectively, the stations are labelled as Long Beach Radio. Programming targets regional news and events as well as a focus on emerging Canadian artists.

In 2016, McBride Communications has dropped the Long Beach Radio simulcast on CHMZ-FM 90.1 Tofino and CIMM-FM 99.5 Ucluelet replacing it with local programming on both stations. CHMZ-FM is now known as TUFF CITY RADIO 90.1 and sister station CIMM-FM is now known as UKEE RADIO 99.5. Both stations have retained their Eclectic Rock & Variety formats.
