CHIK-FM started operations on July 29, 1982,[1] 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.

Since 2011, CHIK-FM has more local programming than other Énergie stations around Quebec, with local DJs from 5:30 a.m.-8 p.m. weekdays and 6 a.m.-7 p.m. weekends.
