CKSY-FM is a radio station located in Chatham-Kent, Ontario. Owned by Blackburn Radio, the station broadcasts an adult contemporary format on 94.3 FM. CKSY is co-owned with adult-hits station CKUE-FM and country-formatted CFCO-AM-FM.
CKSY first broadcast on July 1, 1986, and was originally carried 95.1 FM (which had previously been the frequency used by CBEE-FM, a rebroadcaster of CBC Radio One station CBE in Windsor, now at 88.1 FM). CKSY originally aired an easy listening music format branded as "Cosy," which evolved into a brighter, more contemporary AC format by the mid-1990s.
By 2010, the station had dropped much of its "traditional" AC music (i.e. soft rock) and adopted a brighter, more contemporary music mix, while remaining within the boundaries of the AC format. In 2014, sister station CKUE-FM would ultimately drop active rock for a soft AC format, and has since shifted to a classic rock format as "Cool FM."
