community run

Corporation 's radio and television service in the Canadian Arctic. Originally known as the CBC Northern Service, its first operations began in 1958 with radio broadcasts (including the takeover of CFYK (CFYK (AM))—originally a Royal Canadian Signal Corps-owned, community-run station in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, which began broadcasting in 1948). Around the same time, the CBC took over CHFC in Fort Churchill (then an army camp in northern Manitoba); the station had previously run a variety of programs, including American AFRS shows. Peter Mansbridge is its most distinguished alumnus. The station in Churchill was closed in the late 1970s and moved to Rankin Inlet as CBQR-FM. The primary CBC North television production centre is in Yellowknife (CFYK (CFYK-TV)), with smaller production centres in Whitehorse (Whitehorse, Yukon) (CFWH (CFWH-TV)) and Iqaluit (CFFB (CFFB-TV)). The CBC North television service is seen through a network of both CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation)-owned and community-owned rebroadcasters in virtually all communities in the Northwest Territories, the Yukon, and Nunavut. CBC North is essentially a television system within a larger network, airing the same programming as CBC Television (with some exceptions). The station airs an hour-long evening news program known as ''CBC News: Northbeat (CBC Television local newscasts)'', anchored by Randy Henderson. It was the sole local newscast that was not merged into Canada Now from 2000 to 2006. The song appears on an album of the same name (Northwest Passage (album)) released by Rogers in 1981, and is considered one of the classic songs in Canadian music history.

Yellowknife quickly became the centre of economic activity in the NWT, and was named the capital of the Northwest Territories in 1967. As gold production began to wane, Yellowknife shifted from being a mining town to a centre of government services in the 1980s.
