If you’re great at sales but have absolutely zero clue about Cabin Radio, well…
We are the NWT’s next radio station – an independent, northern-owned company creating commercial radio, news, and video for the territory’s peoples and communities.
We are proud that:
- We support northern businesses and they come first;
