Prior to moving to its current FM frequency in 1998, CJCD operated at AM 1240. CJCD-AM began broadcasting on November 13, 1979.[3] On October 9, 1985, the station was granted a power increase from 1,000 to 4,000 watts.[3] In September of the following year, a repeater in Hay River at 100.1 FM began operating.[3][4] The change to FM was approved in January 1997.[3][5]

The station was founded by Charles Dent, Derek Squirell and Reg James.[6] The station was sold to the Vista Broadcast Group in 2007.[7]

On May 21, 2014, CJCD kept the station's Adult Contemporary and Classic Hits format, but rebranded as "100.1 Moose FM".[3]
