The station was originally licensed by the CRTC in 1984. [ [http://www.crtc.gc.ca/archive/ENG/Decisions/1984/DB84-905.HTM CRTC Decision 84-905] ] However, due to financial constraints at the CBC, the station was never launched, and the CBC was forced in 1991 to surrender all of its non-operating licenses. Some sources may incorrectly cite the station's call sign as CBOS-FM, the call sign that was assigned to the unlaunched 1984 license.
The CBC subsequently applied for a new license, which was awarded in 2000. [ [http://www.crtc.gc.ca/archive/ENG/Decisions/2000/DB2000-194.htm CRTC Decision 2000-194] ] The station went on the air in the spring of 2001, on the same day as
CBC Radio 2's CBBS-FM.
June 29, 2007, the CBC was given approval to add a rebroadcasterof CBBX in Timminson 105.7 MHz. [ [http://www.crtc.gc.ca/archive/ENG/Decisions/2007/db2007-209.htm CRTC Decision 2007-209] ] Hearst, Kapuskasingand North Bay are also slated to receive rebroadcast transmitters in the CBC's expansion plan, although no official launch date has been announced or licensed [ [http://www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/GENERAL/cbc_lrrp.htm Canadian Broadcasting Corporation long-term expansion plan] ] .
