On March 29, the CBC received approval to convert CBF-FM-10 Sherbrooke to a French-language FM radio programming undertaking broadcasting regional programming. Until now, the transmitter had rebroadcast the programming of CBF-FM Montréal in its entirety. The CBC also proposed to retransmit the programming of the new Sherbrooke station over CBF-FM-11 Asbestos, CBF-FM-6 Lac Mégantic and CBF-FM-12 Victoriaville. These transmitters had also rebroadcast CBF-FM Montréal up to this point. The Sherbrooke station would continue to broadcast over a frequency of 101.1 MHz and have an effective radiated power of 35,000 watts. The Sherbrooke station would broadcast a minimum of 6 hours 15 minutes a week of regional programming. Regional programming would focus on daily regional news, including economic, political, social and cultural issues. For the remainder of the broadcast day, the new station would retransmit the programming of CBF-FM Montréal. (see CBF-FM Montreal for history prior to 2000)

On this same date, CBMZ was authorized to move from 106.9 MHz to 93.9 MHz.
