History[edit]

In 1965, a group headed by Minno Walter Hodge received approval for a new AM station to serve the Carrot River Valley area, from Melfort. The station originally began broadcasting on October 8, 1966 at 1420 KHz as CJVR.

On February 22, 1995, CJVR received approval by the CRTC to change CJVR's frequency from 1420 to 750 kHz, which was vacated by CJWW in Saskatoon.[1]

On March 1, 2002, the station changed call signs to its current CKJH, and changed formats from country to oldies/classic rock as CK750 - Just the Hits. The same day CJVR-FM signed on, which is currently a sister station to CKJH.

CKJH is the broadcast home of the Saskatchewan Huskies university football team.
