CKIK became CFGQ in early 2004.

Allison can be heard regularly on Alberta's CKUA -

Zenon could be heard off and on 107.3 in Calgary throughout its various formats until July 2015, when he and Lexine Stephens were let go by Corus Radio -

The station was launched by Robert K. Whyte on April 15, 1982, as 107.3 CKIK FM, with an album oriented rock format. Throughout the 1980s and much of the 1990s, CKIK (known on-air as KIK FM 107, then 107 KIK FM, and later as Rock 107 the new KIK) played a variety of rock formats as "Calgary's Best Rock," "Calgary's Classic Rock," "The KIK Collection" and "Calgary's New Rock Alternative."

In September 1997, CKIK flipped to CHR/Top 40 as Power 107. In January 2002, it flipped to hot adult contemporary as The Peak 107.3.

On February 19, 2004 the station returned to a rock format as Classic Rock Q107, after which it adopted its current CFQG call letters, in mid-September 2004.

On December 16, 2022 it was reported that CFGQ would launch a new format on January 9, 2023, with CFGQ's remaining local personalities (including afternoon hosts "Tarzan Dan" Freeman and Cam Sullivan) announcing the end of their respective shows.


On January 9, 2023, the station flipped to news/talk as an FM simulcast of its AM sister station 770 CHQR, with both stations collectively rebranded as "QR Calgary."
