Name of creator
CBC Northern Service is a division of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation serving northern Canada. Initially radio transmission in Happy Valley, Labrador began in 1946/47 and was operated by the Canadian Armed Forces. On February 23, 1959 it was taken over by the CBC in order to reach a civilian audience and integrated into the Northern Service. In 1970 it ceased to be part of the Northern Service and became part of Newfoundland regional radio. CBC continues to broadcast to the residents of Labrador through their studio in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.
