History of CBC Radio One FM 99.1
In 1936, the first time, CBC Radio One went on air and became the oldest radio network. In 1944, it also ran two English-language radio stations: the Trans-Canada Network and the Dominion Network. The Trans-Canada Network was original network, and the Dominion Network was the second network. The CBC also worked as a broadcaster and as the principal broadcast regulator until 1958. In 1962, the Dominion Network ended and disappeared, and CJBC turned into a French-language station.
It was the early 1990s when the CBC formally launched on the Internet with some selected programs. The network started live audio streaming of both CBC Radio and CBC Stereo on the Internet in September 1996. In 1980, AM stations of the CBC converted to F.M. because AM received many complaints of its deficient performance. The Sirius lineup in 2005 and the X.M. lineup in 2013 added to the channel.
