CKIQ-FM is a Canadian radio station, which broadcasts at 99.9 FM in Iqaluit, Nunavut. Owned by Northern Lights Entertainment, the station airs a variety/hot adult contemporary format formerly branded as The New CKIQ and Raven Rock, and is one of two commercial radio stations currently licensed to broadcast in the territory. On September 1, 2011, it was rebranded as "The New Triple 9, Ice FM".

History[edit]

The station was licensed by the CRTC in 2002, under the ownership of Nunavut Nalautinga.[1] Northern Lights Entertainment received CRTC approval to acquire the station from Nunavut Nalautinga in 2009.[2]

The station formerly had a rebroadcaster in Rankin Inlet, operating on 99.9 FM with the call sign CKIQ-FM-2, but this was discontinued in 2009.

Notes[edit]

The call sign of CKIQ was previously assigned to a radio station in Kelowna, British Columbia, transmitting on the AM frequency at 1150. That station now broadcasts as CKFR.
