Administrative history

In 1959, a group calling themselves "University Radio Productions" approached the federal government for a broadcast license to operate a student-run FM station on a non-commercial basis. Licensing requirements demanded that licenses only be issued to the university itself; in 1960 students approached the Board of Governors for approval. Operation of the station, including a constitution, was formalized in 1965 between the University and the Student's Union (USSU), and CJUS-FM was launched. For 10 years prior to the establishment of a CBC-FM station in Saskatoon, CJUS carried CBC network programming; and many of the station's locally-produced programmes were carried nation-wide. Originally operating out of the Memorial Union Building (MUB), in 1980 the station moved to the Education Building. In October 1983, the station became a limited commercial station, and changed its call numbers to CHSK-FM. However, by late 1984 the Board of Governors decided not to continue their funding. Although the USSU briefly considered taking full responsibility for running the station, the last day of programming was 30 September 1985.
