CFLN-FM is a radio station in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, broadcasting at 97.9 MHz (formally 1230 kHz). Owned by Steele Communications, a division of Newcap Broadcasting, CFLN first went on the air on September 28, 1974 at 1230 kHz on the AM dial. The station's regular music format is primarily classic rock and country. The station was formerly branded “Radio Labrador” but is now branded “Big Land – Labrador's FM”.

CFLN has repeaters located in Labrador City/Wabush (CFLW 94.7, formally 1340, opened December 6, 1971 originally as a repeater of CFCB) and Churchill Falls (CFLC 97.9, opened February 5, 1974).

On January 29, 2009, Newcap applied to convert CFLN Goose Bay and its rebroadcaster CFLW Labrador City/Wabush from the AM band to the FM band,[1] and was granted the change on June 16, 2009 and now broadcast at the following frequencies:

  • CFLN 97.9 MHz - Goose Bay
  • CFLW 94.7 MHz – Wabush
  • CFLC 97.9 MHz - Churchill Falls

The stations received approval to convert to the FM band on June 16, 2009.[2] On December 13, 2010, CFLN applied to add another FM transmitter at Northwest River to broadcast the programming of CFLN Goose Bay. The application to add a new FM transmitter which will operate on 95.9 MHz received CRTC approval on February 7, 2011.[3]
