Yellowknife, NWT – CKLB radio in Yellowknife is reportedly laying off 11 employees Friday after receiving less funding from the federal government than it was expecting.

Reports say the station will stop producing local and aboriginal language programming, though two people will stay on to play music and commercials.

Funding has been a problem for the last couple of years at CKLB.

The station has been waiting for this year’s funding from the federal government since April but when it came in it was less than expected.

CKLB will remain on air with reduced programming because of licensing and contracts with advertisers.
