The first skapi radio station was built in 1980 when the skapis lived in Schefferville Matimekosh. When the skapis moved to Kawawachikamach in 1983 they
rebuilt the radio station near the tion Office.

The skapi radio station is a vital skapi-language communication link in our community, providing us with identity, entertainment and information.
The radio station is operated by the skapi Development Corporation. It plays tive, Country, Rock and Popular music. It is an important avenue for community and public service announcements, bingo and local communication.
Since 2003 the station has been broadcasting “Lamp to my Feet” skapi Radio Bible Time, a 30-minute program of readings from the New skapi language Bible Translation produced by the Development Corporation. Due to an enthusiastic response, this programming has been expanded to three times a day.
