Q99 (CIKT-FM) is a Hot AC format Canadian station based in Grande Prairie, Alberta. CRTC responded to the application of the Bear Creek Broadcasting Ltd. on November 15, 2006 to broadcast on a different frequency (103.3 FM) and agreed upon radiated power of 100,000 watts. However due to the problems faced during the installation and test signal it was decided by the authorities to switch the frequency to 98.9.The original music format would be Classic Rock and Hits made for listeners between the ages of 35-54 y/o. The total music space covered by the Classical hits would be approx. 35% of the total music programs. The program director and management decided to draw the golden hits from 70’s, 80s and 90s. Q99 signed in air on April 9, 2007 at 12 noon. Ken Truhn the founder and owner of the Bear Creek was the man behind the company and was involved in the Vision he believed. Apart from the music the content hosted by the Q99 FM included local and national news and sports stuff. The history includes the joining and leaving of a number of faces including announcers, program directors, reporters, anchors and other crew members but it be too long to make mention of them there. Q99 was sold out to The Jim Pattison Broadcast Group in October 2015 and are current owners hence.
