CJTK-FM is a Canadian radio station, which airs Christian music and programming at 95.5 FM in Sudbury, Ontario. The station is owned by Eternacom, and was licensed by the CRTC in 1997. The station is branded as KFM and uses one of the current slogans as "Today's Christian radio", "Northern Ontario's Christian Radio", "Music You Can Believe In" and "Christian Radio for Life".
In 2000, the station received approval to add an FM rebroadcaster at North Bay to operate on the frequency, 89.5 MHz. In 2005, CJTK applied to change North Bay's frequency from 89.5 to 107.3 FM, although when the application was approved, the station would operate at 103.5 MHz instead. Once the change from 89.5 to 103.5 took place, the CJTK-FM-1 operating at 89.5 was deleted. On December 5, 2005, CJTK received approval to add a rebroadcaster at Little Current on the frequency, 102.1 MHz and began broadcasting in September 2006. A repeater was also added in Elliot Lake on 102.5 MHz in 2008.
The Canadian Communications Foundation website reports that in 2007, Eternacom received approval to change the authorized contours of CJTK-FM by increasing effective radiated power from 1,400 watts to 8,100 watts. It's uncertain if there's any CRTC decision references regarding the power increase to 8.1 kW.
In 2009, CJTK adopted its current logo and branding as KFM. Both the current and the former logo are still used on CJTK's website. The station's former brandings were known as K95.5, or just simply the K and was also used on CJTK's other repeaters.
On October 11, 2011, Eternacom Inc. applied to add a new low-power FM transmitter in Mattawa, Ontario, which will rebroadcast the programming of CJTK-FM-1 North Bay. The proposed new FM transmitter was approved on December 6, 2011 and will operate in Mattawa at 93.9 MHz. This will be Mattawa's first local FM signal in that community.
On March 30, 2015, the CRTC approved Eternacom's application to add an FM transmitter at Timmins, which will rebroadcast CJTK-FM on 105.5 MHz.

The rebroadcaster in North Bay airs its own separate morning program, but simulcasts the Sudbury station the rest of the time. Eternacom also has a rebroadcaster at Elliot Lake, which also offers some local programming.
CJTK also has future plans of rebroadcasting their signal to other communities in Northern Ontario.
