History[edit]

On December 18, 2002, Raedio Inc. received CRTC approval to operate a new FM radio station in Stratford Ontario.[1]

On September 2, 2003, CHGK began broadcasting as MIX 107.7 FM originally with an adult contemporary music format and with the slogan "The perfect mix without the hard edge".[2] and was owned by Raedio Inc. CHGK has a sister station, CJCS, that has been broadcasting since 1928.

In September 2010, Raedio Inc. announced a deal, to sell the station to Haliburton Broadcasting Group which was approved by the CRTC on February 21, 2011.[3][4][5]

In spring 2011, Haliburton Broadcasting Group rebranded the station as "FM 107.7, Stratford's Lite Favorites" retaining the adult contemporary format.

On April 23, 2012 Vista Broadcast Group, which owns a number of radio stations in western Canada, announced a deal to acquire Haliburton Broadcasting Group, in cooperation with Westerkirk Capital.[6] The transaction was approved by the CRTC on October 19, 2012.[7]
