CBYT launched as a full-fledged station on June 17, 1959 rebroadcasting the signal from CBHT in Halifax until CBNT in St. John's launched in 1964. It was once a semi-satellite of CBNT, carrying a partially separate newscast and producing some programs of its own. However, at its closure, the station was a full rebroadcaster of CBNT, even carrying CBNT's commercials.
In 2002, CBYT ceased to exist as a separately licensed station; its transmitter was assigned to the licence of CBNT.
Due to budget cuts handed down on the CBC in April 2012, the CBC announced several austerity measures to keep the corporation solvent and in operation; this included the closure of the CBC and Radio-Canada's remaining analogue transmitters, including CBYT and its transmitters, on July 31, 2012.
