CKSH-TV is a television station in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada. It is an owned-and-operated station of the Radio-Canada network.

The station first aired on September 19, 1974. As a privately owned station, CKSH basically functioned as a semi-satellite of CBFT in Montreal due to not having alternative non-network sources of programming available. The station had been owned directly by Cogeco prior to the latter's majority acquisition of TQS, to which Cogeco contributed its existing local stations. Radio-Canada took editorial control of the station's news programming in 2002, although it currently shares a studio with former TQS sister station CFKS-TV.

CKSH is seen on cable television systems throughout New England, serving the French American community. Its initial placement on the cable television system of Lowell, Massachusetts was the result of a long fight by leaders of the community in that city. It remains on the Comcast system on Channel 98. It serves as a vital link to the Québécois culture in these communities.

In September 2007, Radio-Canada announced that it would not renew its affiliation agreement with its three Cogeco-owned affiliates — CKSH, CKTM in Trois-Rivières and CKTV in Saguenay — after their current agreement expires in August 2008. An application to directly acquire the station was filed by Radio-Canada on April 25, 2008, concurrently with Cogeco's proposed sale of TQS to Remstar Corporation. [ [ CRTC Notice of Public Hearing 2008-5] .] The transaction was approved by the CRTC on June 26, 2008. [ [ CRTC Decision 2008-130] ]
