CBWK-FM is the callsign of the CBC Radio One station in Thompson, Manitoba. The station broadcasts at FM 100.9.



Formerly a rebroadcaster of Winnipeg's CBW, the Thompson station was upgraded to a full CBC production centre in the early 1990s to improve local service in rural northern Manitoba. The station also formerly produced a special evening program for the region's large First Nations population, in conjunction with Native Communications, but with the launch of NCI's own radio network this has been discontinued.

Local programming

CBWK airs its own local program, North Country, in the mornings, but airs CBW's Up to Speed in the afternoons.
