In 1974, CKY-FM was approved to increase its transmitter height to 790 feet from 388 feet, from a new transmitter site. Today, the station is CITI-FM and is owned by Rogers.


Also in 1974, CBKF-FM Regina was licensed to the CBC by the CRTC on 97.7 MHz with 8500 watts as a French language FM station. The CBC had previously acquired CFNS-AM Saskatoon and CFRG/CFGR-AM Gravelbourg, and they became rebroadcasters of CBKF as soon as the station signed on. In 1975, CFRG/CFGR, which previously had changed frequencies at sunset and sunrise, were approved for a frequency change to 690 KHz with 5000 watts. The call letters were later changed to CBKF-1 Gravelbourg and CBKF-2 Saskatoon. As for CBKF-FM Regina, a failed move of the transmitter site, along with CBK-FM, to Belle Plaine in 1984, saw the transmitters return to Regina in 1987. At Belle Plaine, CBKF-FM was running 100,000 watts. Power returned to the 13,700 watts it had had before leaving Regina in 1984.
