CFMU-FM is a Canadian radio station, broadcasting at 93.3 FM in Hamilton, Ontario. It is a campus/community radio station owned and operated by the McMaster Students Union at McMaster University.

History

CFMU was launched on FM in 1978, broadcasting in mono at 50 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.
