The station began broadcasting in 1973 as CKBR, until it changed to its current callsign in 1981. In 1985, CIBQ received approval to change frequencies from 1340 AM to 770 AM but was never implemented. CIBQ lost out to Calgary's CHQR for a move to 770 kHz.
CIBQ has a sister station CIXF-FM that was launched in 2005.
On April 23, 2010, CIBQ received CRTC approval to move to the FM dial on the frequency 105.7 MHz.
In February 2011, CIBQ (AM) switched from 1340 AM to the 105.7 FM frequency. Branded as Q105.7FM.
On November 7, 2016, CIBQ rebranded as "Real Country 105.7" as part of the province-wide rebrand of all Newcap country radio stations on FM in Alberta under the "Real Country" network branding.
