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.
On May 30, 2013, the CRTC approved the CBC's request to increase CBKF-FM's wattage from 13,700 watts to 22,300 watts, with a decrease in the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 153 to 146.2 metres.
The station's current local programs are Point du jour, in the mornings from 6:00 a.m. to 9 a.m., Midi Plus Saskatchewan from 12:30 p.m. to 1 p.m. and Pour faire un monde in the afternoons, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The Saturday morning program, Les samedis du monde, originates from CKSB-10-FM Winnipeg is heard tape delayed from March to November or live from November to March from 7:00 a.m. to 11 a.m. On holidays, its local programs are replaced with special pan-regional programming from CKSB-10-FM: Les matins de l'Ouest, Les midis de l'Ouest and Le monde chez nous; as with all other Winnipeg-based programming, programming may be live or taped, depending on time of year. For several years, CBKF-FM also used to broadcast a Sunday morning Catholic Mass from the Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption Cathedral in Gravelbourg.
