History

The station was launched in 1948 as CJOB-FM, an FM simulcast of CJOB [cite news | title = Local radio station prepares FM sending | pages = | publisher = Winnipeg Tribune| date = April 13, 1948 ] . The station applied to the BBG to move its broadcast frequency from 103.1 to the current 97.5. [cite news
title = City station asks two FM programs| pages = | publisher = Winnipeg Tribune | date = September 29, 1960
] It opened with distinct programming in 1962, featured a country music format as CHMM-FM in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and changed its format to soft rock and its callsign to CKIS-FM in 1984 [cite news | last = | first = | title = Local FM station is going to CKIS | page = | publisher = Winnipeg Free Press | date = May 29, 1984] . In the late 1980s, CKIS-FM moved to a Rock format, which was not in compliance with its license at that time. Eventually the station was allowed to amend its license, stick with the Rock format, and changed its call letters to the current CJKR-FM in 1991.

Formerly part of Western International Communications, the stations were acquired by their current owner, Corus Entertainment, in 2000.
