History[edit]

On November 26, 2004, Rogers Communications received CRTC approval for a new English-language News/Talk commercial FM radio station in Halifax to operate on the FM dial at 95.7.[1] It was launched on October 11, 2005 at 5:30 a.m.

The station was networked with CKNI in Moncton and CHNI in Saint John, New Brunswick until August 2014, when they were sold to separate owners and flipped formats.
