Media in Kingston, Ontario
In addition to local outlets, radio and television stations from New York state (particularly the Watertown market) are readily available in Kingston. One such station, WLYK in Cape Vincent, New York, promotes itself as a Kingston station — and operates from studios in Kingston under a local management agreement — despite being officially licensed to an American community. The Queen's University campus station, CFRC-FM, is one of the oldest stations in the world, having been founded in 1922. This station served as a commercial outlet until the establishment of CKWS-AM (now CKWS-FM) in 1942. Kingston's two legacy AM frequencies, 960 kHz (CKWS) and 1380 kHz (CKLC) are now dark after both stations moved to the FM band in the late 2000s.
