CJBR-TV - CJBR was launched on November 21, 1954 as a
privately-owned Radio-Canada affiliate owned by Lower St. Lawrence
Radio Inc. and associated with Central Public Service Corp. Ltd.,
both companies owned by the family of Jules Brillant, who also
owned CJBR radio. The station would later be linked to
Radio-Canada's microwave network, on August 7, 1957, and would add
a repeater in Edmundston, New Brunswick (today's CBAFT-2) on April
1, 1962. The Brillants would sell CJBR radio and television
stations to Telemedia in 1970, who, in turn, would sell the

transmitter to a new location, which took the signal off the air
for around a month. From 1962 to 1976, Hydro-Quebec broadcast
CKBL/CBGAT's signal on its own repeaters. Radio-Canada purchased

current callsign sometime in 1972. Radio-Canada moved CBGAT's
signal from channel 9 to channel 6 on November 29, 1978, where it
remains to this day. Radio-Canada launched CBST as a retransmitter
