History

CKBB (AM) was launched on August 31, 1949, by Ralph Snelgrove’s Barrie Broadcasting Company at AM 1230. It signed on as Barrie’s first radio station, and was initially a mixture of music and talk programming. It moved to 950 AM in 1958.

In November 1994, after more than 45 years on the AM dial, CKBB moved to FM as CIQB-FM at 101.1. The station became known as “B101,” originally airing a hot adult contemporary format. CIQB was acquired by Corus Entertainment in April 2000. The station reverted to hot AC in August 2003 and finally to top 40 in 2008. It was one of three top 40 stations owned by Corus radio along with CKQB-FM in Ottawa and CKBT-FM in Kitchener.

On July 27, 2016, CIQB’s website was replaced with a countdown clock to July 29 at Noon. At that time, after playing “Anybody Listening” by Classified, the station flipped to classic rock, branded as “101.1 Big FM”. The first song on “Big FM” was “Big Time” by Peter Gabriel.
