CKUT Programmer/Programming Awards

CKUT’s programmers have been getting serious props since the beginning of (CKUT) time. 


Montreal’s The Mirror began the Readers Poll in 1990 and CKUT’s been all over it ever since.  In 1990 host Big Maybelle was voted #2 Radio Personality and snagged #2 Radio Show for her amazing job on the show Harlem NocturneDykes on Mykes came in at #3 Radio Show and hip hop show The Sound Supreme Show and our beloved AACK (still on the air today) got honorable mentions.  Montrealers (thank you!) have voted CKUT #1 Radio Station every year right up until 2010-11 where we appear at #2. In 2012, Montreal brought CKUT back up to #1 though, not to worry!
