CBE is the callsign of the CBC Radio One station in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

CBE broadcasts at 1550 on the AM dial, and also reaches parts of Western Ontario via two relay transmitters located at Sarnia and Chatham.

History

The station first aired in 1935 as Canadian Radio Broadcasting Commission station CRCW 600, which broadcast until 1938 (changing its call sign to CBW in 1937 after the CRBC became the CBC). Between 1938 and 1950, CBC Radio programming was aired on private affiliate CKLW 1030, later 800. A CBC-owned station was subsequently relaunched in 1950 using its present call sign and frequency. Regional FM rebroadcasters were added in 1977.

Local programming

CBE's local programs are "The Early Shift" in the morning, and "Crosstown" in the afternoon. The CBC's website previously indicated that the relay transmitters in Chatham and Sarnia aired CBLA's "Ontario Morning" in place of "The Early Shift", although it no longer does.

Rebroadcasters

CBE has the following rebroadcasters:

* CBEG-FM - Sarnia - 90.3 [ [http://www.crtc.gc.ca/archive/ENG/Decisions/1986/DB86-193.HTM Decision CRTC 86-193] ] - and its rebroadcaster [RecnetCanada|CBEG-FM]
** CBEE-FM - Chatham - 88.1 [ [http://www.crtc.gc.ca/archive/ENG/Decisions/1986/DB86-192.HTM Decision CRTC 86-192] ] [RecnetCanada|CBEE-FM]

CBE has also been approved by the CRTC to operate a 690-watt rebroadcaster in Windsor at 102.3 MHz, provided that does not interfere with stations at or near this frequency, such as WPOS in Toledo and WGRT in Port Huron. The transmitter must also be operational by May 9, 2010, unless otherwise authorised to be extended. [ [http://www.crtc.gc.ca/archive/ENG/Decisions/2008/db2008-102.htm Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2008-102] ]

The callsign for the new rebroadcaster at 102.3 FM is CBE-1-FM‏‏.
