CHYK-FM is a Canadian radio station, which broadcasts at FM 104.1 in
Timmins, Ontario. It broadcasts a francophone hot adult contemporaryformat for the city's franco-ontariancommunity. It is owned by Haliburton Broadcasting Group.
CHYK and its Sudbury sister station CHYC are the only francophone commercial stations programmed entirely in Ontario. Apart from commercials and separate morning shows, the two stations in fact simulcast the same programming at almost all times, although both stations produce a portion of the shared broadcast schedule.
The station was originally established on
December 23, 1951by J. Conrad Lavigne, with the callsign CFCL at 580 kHz. It operated as a private affiliate of Radio-Canada's French radio network, and was one of the few private affiliate stations of a CBC radio network anywhere in Canada. CFLH in Hearst began broadcasting the same year. In 1956, Lavigne also established CFCL-TVin the city.
In 1957, CFLK began broadcasting in
Kapuskasing. In 1960, CFCL moved from 580 to 620 kHz.
Lavigne's broadcast holdings were eventually merged into the
Mid-Canada Communicationssystem. When that company acquired several other radio stations in 1985, CFCL became a commercial station as part of the Mid-Canada Radionetwork, and disaffiliated from Radio-Canada.
Mid-Canada Radio was sold to the
Pelmorex Radio Networkin 1990. Because the radio and television station no longer had common ownership, the radio station's callsign was subsequently changed to CKOY. CFLH in Hearst later adopted the call sign CHOH, and was converted to FM in 1995 [ [http://www.crtc.gc.ca/archive/ENG/Decisions/1995/DB95-698.HTM CRTC Decision CRTC 95-698] ] , while CFLK in Kapuskasing adopted the call sign CHYK.
Pelmorex, in turn, sold its stations to the
Haliburton Broadcasting Groupin 1999. CKOY was converted to 104.1 FM, and took over the CHYK callsign from its rebroadcaster in Kapuskasing. [ [http://www.crtc.gc.ca/archive/ENG/Decisions/1999/DB99-404.HTM Decision CRTC 99-404] ] The Kapuskasing rebroadcaster was in turn converted to FM in 2003 and later adopted its current callsign CHYX-FM [ [http://www.crtc.gc.ca/archive/ENG/Decisions/2003/db2003-578.htm CRTC Decision 2003-578] ] .
In 2008, Haliburton announced a deal to sell the CHYC stations to Le5 Communications, a firm owned by Sudbury lawyer Paul Lefebvre. [ [http://www.broadcastdialogue.com/pdfs/newsletters/2008/nl20080529_16_03.pdf] ] This deal is pending CRTC approval.
