CFGQ-FM is a Canadian radio station broadcasting at 107.3 FM in Calgary, Alberta with a classic rock format branded on-air as Q107. CFGQ's studios are located on 17th Ave SW near Westbrook Mall, while its transmitter is located at 85th Street Southwest and Old Banff Coach Road in western Calgary. The station is owned by Corus Entertainment which also owns sister stations CKRY-FM and CHQR.
CFGQ was ranked number 7 in the Calgary market according to the fall 2014 PPM data report released by BBM Canada.
The station was launched on April 15, 1982, as CKIK-FM, and first broadcast an adult album rock format. Throughout the 1980s and much of the 1990s, CKIK-FM (known on-air as 107 KIK FM and later as Rock 107) played a variety of rock formats. Early in its history, the station encountered financial difficulties, which were alleviated in 1985, when Harvey Glatt, Ottawa music impresario and founder of CHEZ-FM, acquired a 75% interest in the station, which he held until 1995.
In September 1997, CKIK-FM adopted a CHR format branded as "Power 107".
In January 2002, CKIK-FM evolved to a hot adult contemporary station known as "The Peak 107.3".
On February 19, 2004, at 1:07 p.m., CKIK-FM dropped the hot AC format, becoming a classic rock station branded as "Q107". The station's call letters were changed to CFGQ.
In January 2015, CFGQ-FM changed its slogan from "Calgary's Only Classic Rock" to "Great Hits & Real Classic Rock" but kept the same format.
In July 2016, CFGQ-FM changed their slogan from "Great Hits & Real Classic Rock" to "Greatest Hits of the '70s, '80s and '90s", while adjusting their format slightly to include newer rock hits.
The station currently has a show featuring Tarzan Dan, one of their most common radio hosts.
