is a Canadian
radio station, broadcasting at 600 AM
in North Bay, Ontario
. The station, owned by Rogers Communications
, airs a country music
The station was launched in 1967. It originally broadcast a country music format at 93.7 FM, and was acquired by Northern Broadcasting, the owners of CFCH.
In 1979, CKAT moved to 101.9 FM.
In 1980, CKAT and CFCH were sold to Telemedia.
In 1996, Telemedia swapped the stations in a move similar to its 1990 switch involving CKSO and CIGM in Sudbury. CKAT took over CFCH's AM frequency, and CFCH moved to the FM station and adopted the new callsign CKFX.
In 2002, Telemedia sold the stations to Standard Broadcasting, who shortly sold them to Rogers Communications.
In fall 2005, CKAT and CIGM underwent a format change, with country music cut back (although not entirely eliminated) in favour of increased news and sports programming.
The station's general manager is Peter McKeown, a former morning man for many years on CHUR and CKAT.
