The Cape 94.9 launched in 1957, legally known as CKPE-FM is a Sydney based Adult Contemporary music and talk station owned by Maritime Broadcasting System. The Island’s Greatest Hits is the Catchphrase of the station channel and siblings include CJCB-AM and CHER-FM. History of the station goes back to 1947 when Eastern Broadcasters Ltd., the owner of The Cape 94.9 (CJCB) at that time was awarded a 250 watt license for Sydney. In 1957 the channel after a brief pause got reactive on a frequency of 94.9 MHz and with an increased ERP of 630 watts. Being a CBC Dominion affiliate it repeated the broadcasts of CJCB-AM. After the unity of Trans-Canada and Dominion in 1962 CJCB became an independent station. The wattage was increased to 675 watts and 61,000 watts in 1965 and August 1978 respectively. CJCB-FM now has its own separate programing and on air time was increased from 87 to 124 hours/week.
