Beginning as CJUC, the station was started in 1963 by David Shilliday and physics professor Ron Riddell. In 1968 the call letters were changed to CKUW to mark the founding of the University of Winnipeg. At that time the station operated as a closed circuit station broadcasting to Lockhart Hall ... See more lounges, the Buffeteria and the Bulman Students Centre. Despite the small presence on campus CKUW had a disproportionate effect on the local music scene. As campus/community radio spread across Canada CKUW looked towards broadcasting to the whole city in FM. Ten years of research, planning and saving were required to complete a licence application and ensure that the station would be healthy and successful. The Winnipeg Campus/Community Radio Society is the group that oversees the operation of CKUW. The Radio Society is formally incorporated as a non-profit organisation and the volunteer Board of Directors works towards the continued success and growth of CKUW. Our licence application was approved by the CRTC in October 1998. We spent much of that winter training volunteers and purchasing the needed equipment. Test broadcasts started on April 27th 1999, and the official kick off broadcast started at 12:00 AM on Friday, April 30th. First was a short speech by Station Manager Rob Schmidt, and the first song was ‘That’s Entertainment’ by the Jam

A hidden gem of a station, college station with 24/7 live djs. little to no stream automation which makes CKUW-FM in the minority when it comes to internet radio stations. It may not be predictable in it's playlist, but then it has no playlist so the weirded and coolest things can occur at the drop of a hat.
