Radio Waterloo CKMS-FM
Radio Waterloo CKMS-FM launched at the University of Waterloo in the summer of 1977 at 94.5 MHz. Broadcasting via a 50W signal, the station became the third campus FM station in Ontario and operated under the name Radio Waterloo. In 1977 the station began publishing FM Guide, a series of program guides, featuring music listings and news items about local events, social justice issues and pop culture. The following year the publication name was changed to FM Times. It remained in production until October 1983 when the station discontinued production due to budgetary constraints. The station moved off-campus in the late 2000s after becoming fully independent following the loss of student funding in a 2008 referendum.
Radio Waterloo continues to broadcast today at frequency 102.7 MHz from its offices on Duke Street in Kitchener, Ontario. Visit the CKMS history page for more information about the station's founding and development.
