CFGB-FM is a radio station broadcasting at 89.5 MHz (FM) from Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, and is the local Radio One station of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, serving as that network's primary outlet in Labrador. A shortwave relay, CKZN rebroadcasts CFGB's signal to remote areas of Labrador.


CFGB launched on February 23, 1953 on 1340 AM. It was originally operated by the Royal Canadian Air Force. It was taken over by the CBC on February 23, 1959 and became part of the CBC Northern Radio Service. The station received CBC news and topical programs by relaying the signal from CBA in Sackville, New Brunswick. Tapes recorded in Montreal were also flown in on regular airline flights. Eventually the station was linked into the primary CBC network feed.

In 1985, CFGB moved to 89.5 FM. The call sign then changed to CFGB-FM.

Local programming

CFGB produces its own local morning show, Labrador Morning with Janice Goudie. CBDQ-FM in Labrador City also contributes reports. The station otherwise broadcasts programming from CBN in St. John's during the network's local programming blocks, with some exceptions (i.e., commercials).

On May 24, 2016, the CBC applied to convert CBNZ 740 to 95.1 MHz with 50 watts of power (average and maximum ERP). Antenna height will be -29.63 metres with a non-directional radiation pattern.[2] The CRTC approved the CBC's application to move CBNZ to 95.1 FM on September 7, 2016.[3]

Shortwave relay

In 1989, a shortwave relay of CBN—St. John's with the call sign CKZN operating on 6.16 MHz (in the 49m band) was granted authority to rebroadcast CFGB part-time as well as CBN. In 1994, CKZN became a full-time rebroadcaster of CFGB. Operating at 1,000 watts, it can be heard over much of the North American continent and in Europe, particularly at night.
