CFYK is a Canadian radio station, broadcasting at 1340 AM in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. The station broadcasts the programming of the CBC Radio One network and locally produced programs.

Local programming

CFYK produces all of CBC Radio's local programs in the Northwest Territories, including The Trailbreaker on weekday mornings, the noon-hour program Northwind, Trail's End in the afternoons, and Northern Air on weekend mornings.

The station's afternoon programming also differs significantly from the rest of the network. Afternoon programming such as Q is pre-empted; instead, the station airs afternoon programming in First Nations languages:

  • 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. - Tide Godi, Dogrib
  • 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. - Le Got'she deh, Slavey
  • 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. - Dene Dayalt'i, Dene Suline

CHAK in Inuvik, while airing the same regular local programming schedule as CFYK, produces a distinct schedule of First Nations programming in the afternoons.


CFYK has the following rebroadcasters:
