Closed circuit Laurentian Radio opened in September, operating from Room G7 in the Single Students' Residence, Laurentian University.

 

1986 

The station moved to Room AP-1. The station now known as CFLR, began broadcasting at 106.7 MHz on cable FM in the late fall.

 

1990

The Laurentian Student and Community Radio Corporation was formed in November. 

 

1996

On September 11, Laurentian Student and Community Radio Corporation was awarded a licence for a new FM campus/community radio station. It would operate on a frequency of 96.7 MHz and have an effective radiated power of 1,300 watts. Most of its 115.5 hours per week would be in English, with some French-language and ethnic programs. 

When the station signed on the air it was known as CKLU (LU for Laurentian University). 

2001

On February 23 the CRTC renewed CKLU-FM's licence until August 31, 2007. Among other things, the Commission removed the requirement to submit a Promise of Performance, revised its expectation related to the structure and continuity of the board of directors and removed stipulations regarding the use of "restricted" advertising. The licensee had proposed to devote 21 hours and 30 minutes per week to French-language programming. It has also proposed to devote 4 hours and 30 minutes per week to third-language programming (directed to 5 ethnic groups in 4 different languages). This Commission found this was consistent with the significant role played by campus stations in serving the needs of the minority communities resident within their service areas.

 

2016

In September, CKLU moved to a new location located off the Laurentian University campus. It was now downtown at the university’s McEwen School of Architecture. An open house was held September 26 to celebrate the move.
