Originally a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation affiliate, it switched to the private CTV network in 1969, when CHAB/CHRE in Moose Jaw was purchased by the CBC, and turned into a semi-satellite of CBKT.
In 1977, it was sold to Harvard Developments, owned by Regina's Hill family. In 1985, a 90 percent stake would be sold (the remaining 10 percent would soon follow) to Baton Broadcasting, bringing it under common ownership with Saskatchewan's other CTV affiliates, CFQC Saskatoon, CICC/CKOS Yorkton, and CIPA/CKBI Prince Albert. Today, it operates as a CTV owned-and-operated station, part of CTVglobemedia. Local programming today is limited primarily to the station's popular newscasts.
In the 1980s, CKCK identified itself as "CKTV", but its official call letters remained CKCK-TV. During this period, though, the station did acquire the CKTV calls for its Fort Qu'appelle retransmitter. That station is now CKCK-TV7, and "CKTV" is currently the official call sign for a Radio-Canada affiliate in Saguenay, Quebec.
Nevertheless, while the station identifies itself only as CTV, many people in southern Saskatchewan still know it as CKTV or CK.
