CKNI-FM (2005-2014)[edit]

On November 26, 2004, Rogers Media received CRTC approval to operate a new English-language commercial FM News/Talk radio station at 91.9 FM in Moncton, New Brunswick. [1] News 91.9's first broadcast was on October 11, 2005 with studios located on Assomption Boulevard in downtown Moncton. CKNI was networked with sister stations CHNI-FM in Saint John (which has since been sold to Newcap Radio and flipped to a rock music format in July 2014), and CJNI-FM in Halifax. Broadcasts included the national award-winning morning news/talk show The Morning News with Allan Dearing and Tara Clow from 6 to 10am weekdays. CKNI-FM also broadcast Moncton Wildcats, Ottawa Senators and Toronto Blue Jays games.

On March 31, 2014, CKNI-FM was sold to Acadia Broadcasting. On August 8, 2014, CKNI dropped its news/talk format and flipped to adult contemporary, branded as 91.9 The Bend.
