On November 27, 2012, Golden West Broadcasting launched the first radio station in Fort Saskatchewan. CKFT / Mix 107.9 FM broadcasts a classic hits/classic rock format and is fully committed to the local community. All employees are required to live in Fort Saskatchewan and have a demonstrated commitment to and a passion for the community. In their application, CKFT convinced the CRTC that they would not poach advertisers from Edmonton radio stations. On hand for the station’s launch was Mayor Gale Katchur who, along with many others from Fort Saskatchewan, actively demonstrated their support of CKFT’s application.
