History[edit]

CKSA started as an AM station on April 3, 1957. CKSA first broadcast on the 1150 kHz frequency and later changed to 1080. In 2002, the station received approval by the CRTC to move from the AM dial to the FM dial.[1] For many years, CKSA was the only radio station in Lloydminster and the surrounding area owned by Midwest Broadcasting.

In the 1990s, CKSA changed its format to country, and it was once known as Country 108.

As part of a re-branding strategy by its new owners, Newcap Broadcasting, CKSA was changed to Lloyd at 95 dot 9—He Plays Everything Country!
