CHIK's last logo as an Énergie station.

CHIK-FM started operations on July 29, 1982,[1] as a sister station to the now-defunct CJRP 1060 and originally had an easy listening format, similar to what CITF-FM and CHOI-FM then had as per their respective conditions of licence; it switched to a contemporary hit radio format a few years after opening because there were too many easy listening stations in the Quebec City market.

Since 2011, CHIK-FM is now programmed independently from other NRJ stations.
