Until 1980, CHNB and CKNY aggressively competed with each other for advertising revenues, leaving both in a precarious financial position due to the North Bay market's relatively small size. In 1980, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission approved the merger of the two stations, and with their co-owned stations in Sudbury and Timmins, into the MCTV twinstick.
In 2002, CTV sold its four CBC affiliates in Northern Ontario, CHNB, CJIC in Sault Ste. Marie, CKNC in Sudbury and CFCL in Timmins directly to the CBC. All four ceased to exist as separate stations on October 27, 2002, and become rebroadcasters of Toronto's CBLT. CHNB's call sign was changed to CBLT-4. These translators closed on July 31, 2012, because of budget cuts at the CBC.
