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, currently holds a separate license to rebroadcast CBKF's programming in that city.
The station's local programs include Point du jour, hosted by Grégory Dubosc, in the mornings, and Jour de plaine, hosted by Doris Labrie, in the afternoons. The station also broadcasts a Sunday morning Catholic Mass from the Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption Cathedral in Gravelbourg.
