History of Cool 100.1
The station was licensed to Belleville Radio Limited by the CRTC in 2000. FM officially started broadcasting on October 31, 2001, known as Q100. CRTC granted permission to decrease effective radiated power from 40,000 to 21,000 watts and also relocate the transmitter site to the northwest of Belleville (Seaway) on September 12, 2001. John Sherratt purchased Belleville Radio Limited in January 2002.
Two radio channels would be operated under the new parent company, Starboard Communications. On February 23, 2004, the station was rebranded as Today’s Best Country, Cool 100. From October 31, 2001, through January 11, 2010, FM was operated from studios and offices at 354 Pinnacle Street in downtown Belleville. After that, it shifted its studios to its current location at 497 Dundas St, West, Belleville. Starboard Communications acquired this new building on May 1, 2009.
