FX101.9 (CHFX-FM) launched in November 1947 is a FM station owned by Maritime Broadcasting System. Today’s Country is the slogan of the station. CHNS-FM is the sibling of the radio. In 1947 a 250 watt transmitter of The Halifax Herald Ltd., was approved thus creating CHNS-FM which started broadcasting in the November of the same year. FX101.9 switched its frequency from 92.3 to 96.1 MHz. The FM and AM stations of The Halifax Herald were affiliated with CBC Dominion Network in 1957. After the merger of CBC Dominion and Trans-Canada the channels became independent.
