In 1981, The Regina Leader-Post newspaper, which owned CKCK, was licensed for a new FM station, which signed on the next year as CKIT-FM on 104.9 MHz with 100,000 watts. Today, the station is CFWF-FM owned by Harvard Communications, which also owns CKRM-AM and CHMX-FM.
In 2006, the CBC received approval for nested FM repeaters in downtowns of major Prairie cities:
- CBX Edmonton was approved for a 3931 watt FM repeater in downtown Edmonton. CBX-2-FM signed on the next year on 93.9 MHz with reduced power because of building wiring issues within the commercial building where the transmitter was located.
- CBR Calgary was assigned to 99.1 MHz with 1100 watts. CBR-1-FM signed on January 27, 2007. On January 23, 2008, the CBC was approved for a power increase to 2800 watts, with a decrease in antenna height.
- CBK Watrous, built in 1939 on 540 KHz to serve both Saskatoon and Regina, was approved for an FM repeater in downtown Regina. CBK-1-FM signed on to 94.1 MHz with 4100 watts in 2007.
- Two FM transmitters were approved for Winnipeg. French language CKSB St. Boniface was assigned to 90.5 MHz as CKSB-10-FM. And English language CBW Winnipeg to 89.3 MHz. Both transmit with 2800 watts from a tower atop the Richardson Building.
