In 1984, CFFR Calgary signed on as 66-CFR. Owner Rawlco had spent more than two years getting the station on the air, on 660 KHz with 50,000 watts. In 1994, Golden West purchased an interest in the station, received CRTC approval to do an AM to FM flip for CFXL, and moved CFXL into the CFFR building. CFXL became CKIS-FM in 1996. 66-CFR became 660 News on April 3, 2006.


In 1991, the District of Hudson's Hope obtained a license for CKHH-FM, on 106.1 MHz with 10 watts, as a rebroadcaster of CKNL Fort St. John.

In 2003, CFAN Miramichi (New Brunswick) did an AM to FM flip, to 99.3 MHz with 17,800 watts. The station had been paid by CHUM in 1973 to regain the CFUN call letters for CKVN Vancouver. CFAN began as CKMR in April 1949, switched to CFUN in 1970, and CFAN in 1973.

In 2005, CFCH-FM Chase (B.C.) was given authority by Industry Canada to begin testing on 103.5 MHz with 4.7 watts. The station was licensed to the local Lions Club, but was turned over to a local Radio Society setup for the purposes of managing the radio station.
