CIBL 101.5 is a French-language community radio station that began its transmission on April 26, 1980, in the heart of the Hochelaga district in Montreal, Canada. At the time, it broadcast on 104.5 frequency from atop one of the Olympic Village’s pyramids. Its antenna power reached only 16 watts. Consequently, its waves concentrated on the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve sector. In order to cover the entire island of Montreal, CIBL changed frequencies in 1991 and went to 101.5.
Additionally, the antenna is relocated to the Olympic Stadium mast’s peak. It has seen the first steps of well-known people whose media careers started on its airways. Jean-René Dufort, Catherine Éthier, Pascal Forget, Monique Giroux, Rock and beautiful ears, Line Beauchamp, Bruno Blanchet, Philippe Laguë, Marc-André Lussier, Mononc’ Serge, Philippe Papineau, Catherine Pogonat and Philippe Renaud animated at FM.
