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



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-FM in Prince George. The application was denied. However, CFPR airs the same programming as CBYG-FM at all times, as they share production of their local programming.

Local programming

CFPR and CBYG-FM jointly produce the local morning program Daybreak North, with one host in each location — Carolina de Ryk works from the studio in Prince Rupert and Chris Walker works from the studio in Prince George. Both stations air CBCV-FM's All Points West in the afternoons.
