CFSL is an AM radio station licensed to Weyburn, Saskatchewan. Owned by Golden West Broadcasting, it broadcasts a country music format on 1190 AM; the station's range covers much of southeastern Saskatchewan. It shares studios with CKRC-FM and CHWY-FM at 305 Souris Avenue in downtown Weyburn.

History[edit]

CFSL signed on in 1957 under the ownership of Soo Line Broadcasting Ltd., serving both Weyburn and Estevan (until the launch of its sister station CJSL in Estevan in 1961). Starting on 1340 kHz, it moved to its current frequency at 1190 kHz around 1991.

Soo Line Broadcasting, and both CJSL and CFSL would be acquired by Golden West Broadcasting in 1995. In 2006, CFSL would gain a sister FM station, CKRC-FM

Programming[edit]

CFSL currently broadcasts a full service country music format. CFSL also carries Toronto Blue Jays baseball games syndicated by the Sportsnet Radio network.
