CFWH is a Canadian radio station, broadcasting at 570 AM in Whitehorse, Yukon. The station broadcasts the programming of the CBC Radio One network known as CBC North. CFWH's sister television station isCFWH-TV.

History

CFWH was launched in 1951 as a local community station on AM 1340. On November 10 1958 it was taken over by the CBC as the first station of the newly formed CBC Northern Radio Service. CFWH received CBC news and topical programs by picking up CBX 1010 (later 740) Edmonton and relaying the broadcast. Tapes recorded in Montreal, Quebec were also flown in on regular airline flights. Eventually the station was linked into the primary CBC network feed.

In 1960, the frequency was changed to 1240 and then to 570 in 1964.

Local programming

CFWH produces all of CBC Radio's local programs in the Yukon, including "A New Day" on weekday mornings, the noon-hour program "Lunch Break", "The Afternoon Show" in the afternoons, and "The Weekender" on weekend mornings.

The station also produces "Rencontres", a weekly French language program for the Franco-Yukonnais community which airs in the network's Saturday afternoon block for local cultural programming. Although Whitehorse itself is served by a rebroadcaster of the Première Chaîne station from Vancouver, that network does not originate any French programming in the Yukon.
