CFGQ is a Canadian radio station broadcasting at 107.3 MHz FM stereo in Calgary, Alberta.

The station was launched on April 15, 1982 as CKIK-FM and first broadcast an adult album rock format.

Throughout the 1980s and much of the 1990s, CKIK-FM (known on-air as 107 KIK FM and later as Rock 107) played a variety of rock formats.

In September 1997, CKIK-FM adopted the contemporary hit radio branded as "Power 107".

In January 2002, CKIK-FM would later evolve to become a hot adult contemporary station known as "The Peak 107.3".

In 2004, CKIK-FM dropped the hot AC format, becoming a classic rock station branded as "Q107". The station call letters were changed to CFGQ.

In 2007, Terry DiMonte - a well known star of the Montreal radio scene - joined Q107 as its morning show host. DiMonte was one of Montreal's top radio announcers for the past 20 years.

CFGQ also has an FM transmitter in Banff which broadcasts on 100.1 MHz FM stereo with an effective radiated power of 92 watts.
