On April 23, 2012 Vista Broadcast Group, which owns a number of radio stations in western Canada, announced a deal to acquire Haliburton Broadcasting, in cooperation with Westerkirk Capital. The transaction was approved by the CRTC on October 19, 2012.
The station may receive interference from a 97 kilowatt radio station, WFRY, out of Watertown, New York. There is also a low-power tourist information radio station in Ottawa known as CIIF-FM also operating at 97.5 MHz. CKKV-FM may cause interference with the Ottawa station as well.
