CKKL is a Canadian radio station, which airs at 93.9 on the FM dial in
Ottawa. The station uses the on-air brand name Bob FM.
The station was originally launched in 1947 as
CFRA-FM, simulcasting the programming of its AM sister station. In 1959, the station began airing some separate programming. Two years later, in 1961, the station's programming became fully independent of CFRA's, and the station adopted the callsign CFMO. CFRA and CFMO were subsequently acquired by CHUM Limitedin 1968.
CHUM dropped the station's longtime
easy listeningformat in 1992, adopting the current calls and the brand name Kool FM for its new hot adult contemporary/CHR format. The CFMO calls and format were picked up by CHEZ-FM Inc., and adopted on what is now CKBY.
May 31, 2003, CKKL-FM dropped its hot adult contemporary/CHR Top 40 format and adopted the current variety hits format branded as Bob FM.
In 2007, CTVglobemedia bought CKKL-FM along with the other CHUM Limited properties.
