CBC has well-positioned itself as the reigning leader of Winnipeg radio, both overall and in the morning.

Fall radio ratings released this week show CBC going head-to-head with 680 CJOB to reel in the most listeners in the city.

Numeris measured the audience period from September 5 to October 30, 2016.

Compared to last year, 94.3 The Drive (Jim Pattison Broadcast Group) flipped from FAB 94.3 and beloved radio brand Power 97 (Corus) returned to the air, kicking 97.5 BIG FM into radio obscurity.
