CKRW-FM, also branded The Rush, is a hot adult contemporary radio station in Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada.
Its first transmission was in 1969; it began simulcasting on AM and FM in 2004 at 610 kHz (AM) and 96.1 MHz (FM). The FM station is now considered the primary signal by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, although unlike most AM to FM conversions the station retains its AM transmitter in order to serve listeners who cannot receive the FM signal due to the Whitehorse area's mountainous terrain.
It is also transmitted into other Yukon communities, including Watson Lake, Haines Junction, Faro, Mayo and Teslin. CKRW is also rebroadcast on CFYT in Dawson City when that station is not originating its own programming.
The Shaw Direct direct broadcast satellite service carries CKRW on channel 856, and the NorthWesTel television service in Whitehorse carries CKRW on channel 8.
Some CKRW programming can also be heard on CFYT-FM in Dawson City which repeats CKRW during hours that local programming is not broadcast.
