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.

Effective September 1st 2019, we will only be adding new material to these station histories in exceptional circumstances. Our intent to chronicle the early days of these radio and television stations has been achieved, and many new sources and technologies, from the CRTC website to Wikipedia, and others, are now regularly providing new information in these areas.
