News, Sports and Country music were included as the content hosted by CKWK 1340. The format of station was changed from Country to Top 40 in January 1986 followed by Adult Contemporary playlists in the upcoming years until 1989 upon adopting Country. A new transmitter facility broadcasting on frequency 95.1 MHz at Deer Lake was approved by CRTC in July 1989. The call-signs were flipped from CKWK to CKXX on December 31, 1989. In 1990 around 80% of the Western Broadcasting Ltd. including CKWK among other encapsulated entities was sold out to Newcap Broadcasting. In February 19997 the band and frequency was swapped form AM to FM and 1340 kHz to 103.9 MHz with a considerable increase in ERP making it 47,000 watts.  The license of the CKXX-FM along with CKXX-FM-1 was renewed on May 28, 2010 with validation extended up to August 31, 2016.
