Cabin Corner: Nightly NWT updates with Ollie

Home » Cabin Corner: Nightly NWT updates with Ollie


Cabin Radio’s nightly live video broadcast keeps you updated with everything happening in the NWT – and tries to keep you sane, too.

Life isn’t easy with a pandemic going on. There are changes every day, there’s a lot to take in, and some of the coping mechanisms we all rely on aren’t as easy to use any more.

Cabin Corner is designed to help with all of that.

Hosted from his home by Ollie Williams, the show goes live on Facebook at 7pm each weekday evening with a friendly, informal update on everything that happened during the day.

CABIN CORNER IS ON SUMMER HIATUS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. Thanks for watching!

Watch each show on the Cabin Radio Facebook page. You don’t need a Facebook account to view.

You can also hear each show rebroadcast at 11pm nightly on CKHR in Hay River, followed by repeats at 8am, noon, and 5pm the following day.
