102.3 K-Rock Newfoundland and Labrador - CKXG-FMK-Rock 102.3 FM (CKXG-FM) Grand Falls-Windsor launched somewhere in 1960s by that time owner Newfoundland Broadcasting Co. The K-Rock at that time was opened as CJON-1 on 680 kHz using an ERP of 10,000 watts. The CJON-1 had been operating as a rebroadcast transmitter of CJON-AM St. John’s. CJON-1 was renamed as CJCN in 1966. The programing of the CJCN was simulcast on CJOX Grand Bank after the approval of the license in 1968. Call-sings of the K-Rock 102.3 were changed from CJCN Grand Falls to CIYQ. In 1982 CHUM was approved by CRTC to acquire CJYQ 930 Ltd. from Don Jamieson’s. The CHUM became the official owner of the radio on January 15, 1983. The ownership of the CJYQ station was once again changed when CHUM sold them out to Newcap Broadcasting Ltd. in July 1989. The call-letters CIYQ were replaced with CKXG on February 1990. CKXG tuned to FM band in September 1999 with an ERP f 20,000 watts and frequency: 102.3 MHz.  In September 2011 the average wattage of the station (CKXG-FM) was decreased from 24,000 to 17,000 watts while increasing the ma effective radiated power from 24,000 to 36,000 watts.
