It came into being in 1927 when the Extension Department of the University of Alberta got the license of CFCK.

FM 94.9 touched the heights of excellence as in 1994; It won the Award of Alberta Recording Industry Award of Excellence. But due to political instabilities, financial management issues, and attempts of privatization of the radio station, CKUA remained off the air for five weeks, on 20th March 1997. The provincially appointed directors controlled the public, and this radio station revived its broadcasting on 25th April 1997. In 2005, the public started funding this radio station, as some of the listeners of the station, at that time, showed some interest in donations.
