CKQK-FM is a radio station broadcasting at 105.5 FM in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada with a Top 40/CHR format branded on-air as Hot 105.5. The station is owned by the Stingray Group which also owns sister station CHTN-FM. CKQK's studios & offices are located at 176 Great George Street in the downtown Charlottetown area.

On July 11, 2006 Newcap received approval from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to operate a new FM radio station at Charlottetown. [1]

The station launched on July 25, 2006 under an active rock format branded as K-Rock 105.5 but was re-branded under a new format on January 12, 2012, with the station's last song AC/DC's "Thunderstruck," being abruptly cut mid-way at 1:05 PM (AST) in favour of a lengthy launch montage that was then followed by the first song under the new format being Flo Rida's "Good Feeling." [2] CKQK's current logo and presentation is being patterned after its sister station CIHT-FM in Ottawa. [3]

On November 13, 2008, CKQK applied to add a new FM transmitter at Elmira and another at St. Edward. The application was approved on January 19, 2009. [4] Based on the current format, CKQK currently competes with the Summerside-based CJRW-FM (with a standard AC format).
