CBAF-FM is a French-language Canadian radio station located in Moncton, New Brunswick. The station has an ad-free news/talk format and is the flagship of the Ici Radio-Canada Première network for Atlantic Canada. CBAF is owned and operated by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, and broadcasts on 88.5 MHz. CBAF was launched in 1954, the first French-language radio station for the Moncton area at AM 1300 kHz. In 1980, the station was granted a rebroadcaster on FM at 88.5 MHz, to offset AM radio reception problems in the Moncton area. The CBC operated both transmitters until 1988, when the AM transmitter was discontinued and the FM transmitter became the station's primary frequency.
