CKQK-FM is a Canadian radio station, airing at 105.5 FM in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Owned by Newcap Radio, the station airs a Top 40 format branded as Hot 105.5.

The station launched on July 25, 2006 under an active rock format branded as K-Rock 105.5 but was re-branded under a new format on January 12, 2012, with the station's last song, AC/DC's "Thunderstruck," abruptly cut mid-way at 1:05 PM (AST) in favour of a lengthy launch montage that was followed by Flo Rida's "Good Feeling."[1] Hot 105.5's logo and presentation is patterned after its Top 40/CHR sister station in Ottawa, CIHT.[2]

On November 13, 2008, CKQK applied to add a new FM transmitter at Elmira and another at St. Edward, Prince Edward Island. The application was approved January 19, 2009.[3]
