CBC Radio One 1140 AM is CBC Radio One affiliate in Sydney, Nova Scotia. Legally known as CBI-AM, the channel serves the area of Cape Breton Island with a number of FM repeaters and by simulcasting CBIS-FM 92.1, a separate local FM sibling that also operates in Sydney. In May 1948 CBC gave permissions for establishment of an AM station at Sydney that would air on 1570 kHz using a 1,000 watts transmitter. On November 1, 1948 CBI, a Trans-Canada station first singed on air for a potential audience of 100,000 at that time in Cape Breton. Barry MacDonald was managing the station. Year 1962 witnessed the merger of Dominion networks and Trans-Canada; however the programing by Dominion remained a part of the CBI.
