Since it's publication we have added three new stations to the family, CJHK, known as Hank-FM, a country station in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, two stations in Thunder Bay, Ontario, CKTG-FM,Country 105.3 and a very current hit music station, CJUK-FM branded as Magic 99.9. In the summer of 2014 CKNI-FM, 91.9 The Bend a mainstream adult contemporary station was launched in Moncton, NB. Our stations have played an important role in the lives of maritimers since the early 20th century and in the last several years we have grown that tradition to include multiple communities in Northwestern Ontario.
