Toronto Airport Radio on 1280 AM goes commercial

CFBN logoCFBN 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 watch website.
