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.
