On July 28, 1970, the licences for the two stations (CJCL-TV and CFKL-TV) were renewed for only two years. The Iron Ore Company of Canada Aviation, Limited was considered ineligible to hold a broadcast television station license, as 60% of the company's shares were owned by American companies. Since it was considered very unlikely another company would be willing to buy these stations, their licenses were renewed temporarily under the existing ownership.
March 30, 1973 saw changes to these two small stations. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation was given approval to purchase CJCL-TV and CFKL-TV. CJCL changed its call letters to CBNLT and continued to operate as a separate station until 1991, when it became a satellite of CBNT in St. John's. CFKL-TV became CBSET-1, a repeater of Sept-Îles' CBSET which, in turn, is a semi-satellite of Montreal's CBMT.
