CINB-FM is a Canadian radio station in Saint John, New Brunswick. Branded as Newsong FM, it broadcasts Christian contemporary music and other religious shows, and is found at 96.1 MHz on the FM dial.

History[edit]

On May 10, 2000, Donald E. Mabee, on behalf of a company to be incorporated and to be known as Newsong Communications received Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) approval to operate a new low-power Christian music FM station at Saint John, New Brunswick.[1] The station began broadcasting in early 2001. Its first program director was Gary Stackhouse, who was instrumental in the launch of the station.

On October 18, 2005, the CRTC approved the application by New Song Communications Ministries Ltd. to effect a corporate reorganization that would result in the applicant acquiring the assets of CINB-FM from New Song Communications Ltd.[2]
