Airport Radio on 1280 AM goes commercial
claims to be Canada's first all-business radio station,
operating on 1280 kHz AM in Toronto. "Biz 1280"
used to be CFYZ, traveler information station for
the Toronto Pearson international airport. Owned
and operated by the Greater Toronto Airports Authority,
the station used to broadcast flight arrival and
departure schedules, as well as traffic and weather
reports. CFYZ switched to business format on April
9, but continues to broadcast flight information
as well. The power of the station is listed as 0.15
kW, enough to cover an airport but hardly sufficient
for a major city. The change was first reported
by Scott Fybush on April 2 on the NorthEast Radio
