Every radio station in Corner Brook has operated from the Glynmill Inn at some point

    History came full circle in 2017 when CFCB and K-Rock moved into the Glynmill Inn, followed by BayFM in 2023 after the closure of those stations.

    Though the building is best known as a hotel, it also shares a pivotal role in the area's radio history. VOWN, Voice of West Newfoundland, was Corner Brook's first radio station and had its beginnings on the top floor of the Glynmill Inn. It signed on the air in 1943 during a public ceremony attended by about 200 guests in the ballroom of the hotel. Following confederation in 1949, that station became CBY, better known as CBC Radio One. History came full circle in 2017 when CFCB and K-Rock moved into the Glynmill Inn, followed by BayFM in 2023 after the closure of those stations. This means each radio station to ever exist in Corner Brook has at one point or another operated out of the historic building.
