CFGI-FM is a Canadian radio station, airing at 102.7 FM in Georgina Island, Ontario.

History[edit]

Licensed by the CRTC in 2001,[1] the station airs a community radio format for the area's First Nations community.

On March 15, 2013, the CRTC approved the station's application to move from 102.7 MHz to 92.3 MHz and by increasing the ERP from 250 to 650 watts on a non-directional antenna, and the EHAAT from 19.3 to 24 metres.[2] The frequency change was in response to CFGI-FM being first-adjacent to a new radio station, ZoomerMedia's CFMO-FM 102.9 MHz in nearby Collingwood, which would have caused significant interference between the two stations. In response to this, ZoomerMedia entered into an agreement with Georgina Island First Nations, in which ZoomerMedia agreed to supply CFGI-FM with new transmitting equipment, refurbish its transmitting antenna and cover the costs related to preparing applications for the CRTC.
