CBDQ-FM is a radio station broadcasting at 96.3 MHz (FM) from Labrador City, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, and is the local Radio One station of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. CBDQ has no rebroadcasters.

History[edit]

CBDQ began as a CBC Low Power Relay Transmitter (LPRT) on the AM band rebroadcasting CFGB 1340 Goose Bay. By the 1980s it was operating on 1490 kHz with 1000 watts day/250 watts night. In 1994, CBDQ was granted a separate licence to originate programming. In 1995, the station switched to the FM band on 96.3 MHz and the call sign was then changed to CBDQ-FM.[1]

Local programming[edit]

CBDQ contributes reports to CFGB Happy Valley-Goose Bay during the local morning show, Labrador Morning with hosts Don Lockhart and Cindy Wall. The station otherwise broadcasts programming from CBN in St. John's during the network's local programming blocks.
