CKXD (Gander, NL)

CKXD-FM is a Canadian radio station broadcasting from Gander, Newfoundland and Labrador at 98.7 FM with a classic rock format branded on-air as 98.7 K-Rock. The station launched between 1973 and 1974 as CJCR at 1350 AM, and is currently owned by Newcap Broadcasting. In 1977, after Don Jamieson bought out Geoff Stirling's interest in Radio CJYQ-930 Ltd., CJCR was renamed CFYQ. In 1983, Jamieson sold his company to CHUM Limited. In 1989, CHUM Limited sold the "Q" stations to Newcap. By 1990, CFYQ had changed frequencies from 1350 to 1010. In 1990, CFYQ's program feed changed from CJYQ to CKIX and changed its call letters again to CKXD. In 1999, with the AM equipment nearing the end of its life cycle, CKXD officially made its move to the FM dial at 98.7 FM.[1] In the early 2000s, CKXD re-branded from KIXX Country to Magic 98 with an adult contemporary format, and shortly afterwards to its current branding and format at 98.7 K-ROCK. The other two KIXX Country stations outside of St. John's, CKXG in Grand Falls-Windsor and CKXX in Corner Brook, were also branded with the "Magic" name and then subsequently to K-ROCK. Source
