CFMU was launched on FM in 1978, broadcasting in mono at 25 watts. It had previously operated as a closed circuit station. In the early 1990s, faced with a wattage increase at nearby CFRU-FM in Guelph, CFMU upgraded to a 250 watt stereo transmitter, with a transmission tower originally located at Chedoke Hospital. Presently transmitting from a tower at Mohawk College shared with Mohawk's instructional station CIOI-FM, the station can be heard throughout much of Hamilton and Burlington, although their vertically polarized signal means the station can be heard farther on car radios.
