Except there have been some new stations taking over some of the old 
converted CBC stations.  For example, a new station doing beautiful 
music has taken over the old CBL transmitter, and it signal competes 
at night with WJIB.

Interestingly enough, it was because of CBL that I discovered WJIB.  
I had a button on my car radio set for 740 because I liked to listen 
to the CBC news at night.  As a result, I occasionally would check to 
see what was going on with WCAS and its later incarnations and 
eventually discovered Bob's WWEA and WJIB.  And it was while I was 
waiting to pick up my sister's kids at Hebrew School one Sunday that 
I discovered Let's Talk About Radio.
