CJCD-FM, branded as 100.1 The Moose, is a Canadian radio station broadcasting at 100.1 FM in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. The station airs a hot AC format and is the only commercial station licensed to broadcast in the Northwest Territories. The station also has a rebroadcaster CJCD-FM-1 at 100.1 FM in Hay River.[1] It's uncertain if CJCD has a network of other rebroadcasters to serve much of the territory.

Prior to moving to its current FM frequency in the late 1990s, CJCD operated at 1240 on the AM dial that originally began broadcasting in late 1979. In 1985, the signal power was boosted from 1 kW to 4 kW. In September of the following year, a repeater in Hay River at 100.1 MHz began operating. The change to FM was approved in January 1997. [2]

The station was founded by Charles Dent, Derek Squirell and Reg James. The station was sold to the Vista Broadcast Group in 2007.

On May 21st, 2014, CJCD kept the AC format, but rebranded as "100.1 Moose FM".
