Description

CBKF-FM is a Canadian radio station, which broadcasts the programming of Radio-Canada's Ici Radio-Canada Première network at 97.7 FM in Regina, Saskatchewan.

History

The station was launched on April 24, 1975. In 1973, two years prior to the station's launch, the network also purchased two established francophone community radio stations, CFRG in Gravelbourg and CFNS in Saskatoon, and converted them to rebroadcasters of CBKF. The stations were recalled as CBKF-1 and CBKF-2, respectively. The CFRG calls are now used by a privately owned French-language community station in Gravelbourg operating at 93.1 FM. A community group in Prince Albert, the Société canadienne-française de Prince Albert, held a separate license to rebroadcast CBKF's programming in that city. The 3,000 watt class B community-owned rebroadcaster CKSF-FM 90.1 has gone off the air to be replaced by Ici Radio-Canada Première's CBKF-FM Regina in 2020. On May 30, 2013, the CRTC approved the CBC's request to increase CBKF-FM's wattage from 13,700 watts to 22,300 watts, with a decrease in the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 153 to 146.2 metres.

Programming

The station's current local programs are Point du jour, in the mornings from 6:00 a.m. to 9 a.m. and Pour faire un monde in the afternoons, 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. The Saturday morning program, Culture et confiture, originates from CBUF-FM Vancouver. On holidays, CKSB-10-FM produces holiday morning program for western Canada - Les matins de l'Ouest. Le retour de l'ouest, produced by Alberta's CHFA-FM, replaces regional drive programming on Première outlets in western Canada. For several years, CBKF-FM also used to broadcast a Sunday morning Catholic Mass from the Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption Cathedral in Gravelbourg.

Transmitters

On August 7, 2020, the CBC received CRTC approval to add a new FM transmitter at 90.1 MHz Prince Albert to rebroadcast the programming of CBKF-FM in Regina, Saskatchewan. The new transmitter will also replace CKSF-FM at Prince Albert which was previously owned by Société canadienne-française de Prince Albert, a community-owned rebroadcaster of CBKF-FM Regina. The new call sign become CBKF-FM-6.
