History of the CKGN call letters[edit]

CKGN is a former callsign from a television station in North Bay, Ontario from 1955 to 1962, known today as CKNY-TV and CKGN was again used for a television station (Global Television) in Toronto, Ontario from 1974 to 1984. The call letters remained unused until the launch of CKGN-FM in the early 1990s.[1][2]


In 2000, the station was authorized to add a transmitter at Smooth Rock Falls to operate on the frequency 94.7 FM.[3]
