The station was originally owned by K-Rock 105.7 Inc., consisting of John P. Wright (60%), Douglas Kirk (15%), and Rogers Broadcasting (25%). The same ownership group also owns CIKR-FM, and operates WLYK (102.7) in the nearby American community of Cape Vincent, New York through a local marketing agreement.
The station received CRTC approval on August 28, 2007. However, the 93.5 FM frequency is an adjacent frequency to a nearby radio station WCIZ in Watertown, New York across the St. Lawrence River broadcasting at 93.3 FM. The antenna configuration used by CKXC is directional to protect WCIZ. The 93.5 MHz frequency was formerly used by WCIZ up until the late 1990s.
In late November 2008, Rogers announced it would acquire the remainder of the ownership group, pending CRTC approval. Its application was approved by the CRTC on May 4, 2009.
Current on air line up include Big G and Mathews in the morning, Jacquie Beckett, Ryan Roberts, Wendy B, Jeff Code, Rick Choma and Lisa Ray also long time TNT TV hosts Crook and Chase host the station's top 40 country countdown.
