CHIK-FM started operations on July 29, 1982, as a sister station to the now-defunct CJRP 1060 AM and originally had an easy listening format, similar to CITF-FM and CHOI-FM as per their respective conditions of licence. CHIK-FM switched to a contemporary hit radio format a few years after opening because there were too many easy listening stations in the Quebec City radio market.
