History of KX 94.7
The channel originally started transmission on September 1, 2000, with a smooth jazz format as CIWV FM by Burlingham Communications Inc. FM filled an application to CRTC to add new transmitters in Meaford, Peterborough, and Ottawa, Ontario in 2007. CRTC rejected the application. Burlingham Communications Inc merged with Durham Radio Inc. on September 1, 2007, and the newly merged entity continued operations under the Durham Radio banner.
On July 28, 2011, CIWV FM moved to a country format and on Monday, August 1, 2011, branded as KX 94.7. It also adopted its current call sign CHKX FM. CRTC permitted CHKX to utilize HD Radio services in December 2015. As a result, FM would return to the airwaves as a digital subchannel on 94.7-HD2 for the audience in the Hamilton area. The channel’s sister station CJKX FM broadcasts on HD and digital subchannel HD2 as Wave.FM on 95.9-HD2 for listeners in the Durham Region area in September 2017.
