CIKZ-FM is a Canadian radio station broadcasting at 106.7 FM in Kitchener, Ontario. The station airs a country music format branded as Country 106.7. The station is owned by Rogers Media which also owns sister stations CHYM-FM and CKGL.
CIKZ was licensed to Larche Communications, the station's original owner, by the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission in 2003, and began broadcasting in 2004 at 99.5 FM. However, the station later changed from 99.5 to 106.7 FM in 2005, due to interference from WDCX-FM in Buffalo.
On June 4, 2007, Larche announced a deal to sell CIKZ to Rogers in exchange for CICX in Orillia. The deal, which was approved by the CRTC on December 24, 2007, placed CIKZ in a cluster with Rogers' existing CKGL and CHYM in Kitchener.
On January 28, 2008, the station modified its on-air identity to reflect the new ownership. This included some of the on-air personalities and its web site, as well as the adjustment of its branding and logo from "KICX" (the spelling used by Larche) to "KIX". Shortly thereafter, Rogers moved the station's studios, previously in Waterloo, to the Rogers facility in downtown Kitchener.
On May 30, 2013, the station was rebranded as Country 106.7, as part of Rogers' rebranding of its country-formatted stations to a unified brand. Other than the branding change, no format or staff changes are expected.
