SoundFM is run as an aid organization and is maintained and staffed by a programmers Coop and a huge set of volunteers. Aside from that, CKMS is a very pioneering radio station, offering numerous contemporary ways to get your content on the air.
CKMS plays a diversity of genres both in English and other languages, so as to present the campus and community with music that may not otherwise be available on air from conventional venues.
The station launched in 1977 at 94.5 FM and moved to 100.3FM in 1992 where it has been broadcasting from at least 6 am until midnight. The station moved again, to 102.7FM in 2015. The station’s programmers are all volunteers from the Kitchener-Waterloo community and students at the University of Waterloo. The station is governed by a board of directors made up of community members.
The sound moved to 142 Waterloo St. in late 2011, and restarted live broadcast once the station was in order. The Station is still run by interested students and community members and is funded through the Co-Op Member Fees, Programmer Fees, and fundraising activities, such as past grants from GO’s.
On August 3, 2015, Radio Waterloo Inc. submitted an application to change CKMS-FM’s frequency from 100.3 MHz to 102.7 MHz. No longer funded by UW students, CKMS goes fully independent in 2008, and in March 2017, CKMS again switched frequencies to 102.7 FM.
