KiSS 102.3 FM is a Winnipeg based Hot AC format station owned by Rogers Media. Also known by its call letter CKY-FM the station traces its root back to the original CKY launched and operated by Manitoba Telephone System in 1923 and the signal was identified as CNRW. A good bulk of the programming came through CRBC (later CBC). The partner (CBC) in June 1948 purchased the CKY and the name was now changed to CBW. Lloyd Moffat rejected the call letters “CBW” and restored the old call signs i.e. CKY. In 1949 CBC Board approved Bergman-Moffat’s, the applicant to setup an AM band station using 1080 kHz and ERP 1,000 watts which was later increased to 5,000 watts.

The first CKY-FM station was launched on frequency 92.1 MHz in 1963 using an ERP of 360,000 watts. The CKY was rebranded as CITI-FM in 1978. After the Moffat sold out its radio division to Rogers Communications in 1992 subsequently, the Rogers made an application to CRTC to covert CKY to the FM band but because of some good programming and success of morning show Don Percy and Friends the decision was held off until January 2004 flipping to the frequency 102.3 FM and ERP of 70,000 watts. In the same month (January 2004) CKY 580 was renamed as 102 Clear FM. In 2006 a sibling CIIT-TV was launched making it three after CITI and CKY.
