Compass FM sits within its sister station's (Lincs FM) TSA (Total Service Area) and the stations format reflects that.
Richard Lyon who has been with the station since day one hosts the breakfast show. Daytimes are presented by Ross Carrick (who also presents afternoons on KCFM) and afternoons are presented by Ross Garrigan (who also presents evenings on Lincs FM). The similarities between the two Ross's names are a running joke on-air. 
Budget cuts within the Lincs FM Group mean that Compass FM, amongst others within the group, have restricted live programming. The station used to provide live radio 24/7, but now use automation (where the presenter's links between the records are all pre-recorded but made to sound live). Live programming is part-used on the breakfast show in the week (0600-0900, the last hour automated), Saturdays 0800-1200, 1400-1800 and Sundays 0800-1200.
Three applications were received by the Radio Authority by 5 September 2000, which also included the proposed Haven FM and Southbank FM, having been first advertised in May 2000. The licence for the station was awarded on 24 November 2000.
