Owned and operated by Bell Media, it broadcasts on 98.9 MHz with an effective radiated power of 41,000 watts (class C1) using an omnidirectional antenna. The station's transmitter is located at Mount Bélair.
CHIK-FM started operations on July 29, 1982, as a sister station to the now-defunct CJRP 1060 and originally had an easy listening format, similar to what CITF-FM and CHOI-FM then had as per their respective conditions of licence; it switched to a contemporary hit radio format a few years after opening because there were too many easy listening stations in the Quebec City market.
Since 2011, CHIK-FM is now programmed independently from other Énergie stations.
