Northern Lights Entertainment Inc.

On February 1, the CRTC approved the application by Northern Lights Entertainment Inc. for a broadcasting licence to operate a predominantly English-language commercial FM radio programming undertaking in Iqaluit. Northern Lights was controlled by its sole shareholder and director Glenn Craig, and was also the licensee of CKIQ-FM Iqaluit. The station would operate at 103.5 MHz (channel 278A) with an effective radiated power of 415 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of the antenna above average terrain of -37.8 metres). It would offer an Oldies music format. The applicant indicated it would provide approximately seven hours of programming in the Inuktitut language per broadcast week.


CKGC-FM began broadcasting on March 25.


On August 25, CKGC’s licence was renewed short-term to August 31, 2022 due to ongoing issues of non-compliance.
