CFPR is a Canadian radio station, airing at 860 AM in Prince Rupert, British Columbia. It is part of the CBC Radio One network.

History

CFPR first aired in 1936 on AM 580, as a private CBC Radio affiliate owned by Northwest Broadcast & Service Co. It moved to AM 1240 in 1941 (see Canadian allocations changes under NARBA), and became a Trans-Canada Network affiliate in 1944. The station was directly acquired by the CBC in 1953 shortly after going out of business as a private station.

In 1963, the CBC was granted approval to move the station to its current frequency, which it did by 1967.

In 1988, the CBC applied to convert the station to a straight rebroadcaster of CBYG in Prince George. The application was denied. However, CFPR airs the same programming as CBYG at all times, as they share production of their local programming.

Local programming

CFPR and CBYG jointly produce the local morning program "Day Break North", with one cohost in each location — Russell Bowers works from the studio in Prince Rupert and Chris Walker works from the studio in Prince George. The stations air CBCV's "All Points West" in the afternoons.
