K-Rock 98.7 Gander (CKXD-FM), NL is a classic rock format station currently owned by Newcap Radio. The history of the 98.7 FM dates back to July 27, 1973 when Newfoundland Broadcasting Co. had an approval to establish an AM channel at Gander. CJCR was on air in somewhere 1973-74 at 1350 kHz AM using and ERP of 1,000 watts. The Don Jamieson of Newfoundland and Broadcasting sold its shares in NBC to Geoff Stirling. With that the station was now detached from CJON-TV and the call-letters were switched from CJCR to CFYQ. The studios were established in Gander in October 1979. CFYQ’s power increase and frequency flip was denied by CRTC in January 1980; however, the increase in wattage was approved with frequency swap in 1981 which were now 5,000 watts and 1010 kHz respectively.
