CBWK-FM is the callsign of the CBC Radio One station in Thompson, Manitoba. The station broadcasts at 100.9 MHz (FM).

History[edit]

The station signed on in 1980. Although separately licensed, for all intents and purposes it was a rebroadcaster of Winnipeg's CBW. It was upgraded to a full CBC production centre in the early 1990s to improve local service in rural northern Manitoba. The station also formerly produced a special evening program for the region's large First Nations population, in conjunction with Native Communications, but with the launch of NCI's own radio network this has been discontinued.

Local programming[edit]

CBWK airs its own local morning show, North Country. The station otherwise broadcasts programming from CBW in Winnipeg during the network's local programming blocks, with some exceptions (i.e., commercials).
