CKSA-FM is a Canadian radio station broadcasting at 95.9 FM in Lloydminster, Alberta. The station currently plays a country music format, with the on-air moniker Real Country 95.9 and is owned by Newcap Radio.

History[edit]

CKSA started as an AM station on April 3, 1957. CKSA first broadcast on the 1150 kHz frequency and later changed to 1080 kHz in 1965. In 2002, the station received approval by the CRTC to move from the AM dial to the FM dial.[1] For many years, CKSA was the only radio station in Lloydminster and the surrounding area owned by Midwest Broadcasting.

In the 1990s, CKSA changed its format to country, and it was once known as Country 108. After it was acquired by Newcap, it was rebranded as 95.9 Lloyd FM.

In November 2016, CKSA rebranded under the Real Country brand, as with other Newcap-owned country stations in Alberta.[2]
