CIKR is a Canadian radio station, broadcasting at 105.7 FM in Kingston, Ontario. The station broadcasts an active rock format branded as K-Rock 105.7. The station's owners also operate WBDR 102.7 (now WLYK) in the nearby American community of Cape Vincent, New York, through a local marketing agreement.

The station was launched in 2001 by John Wright, formerly the general manager of the competing stations CKLC and CFLY. It was the first new station launch in Kingston since 1953. The first song after this launch was "New Orleans is Sinking" by Kingston's own Tragically Hip.

In April 2007, K-Rock 105.7 Inc. has applied to open up a new country music radio station to serve the Kingston market at 93.5 MHz [ [ Broadcasting Notice of Public Hearing CRTC 2007-6 ] ] and was given approval on August 28th, 2007. [ [ Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2007-334 ] ] However, the 93.5 FM frequency is an adjacent frequency to a nearby radio station WCIZ in Watertown, New York just across the St. Lawrence River broadcasting at 93.3 FM. The 93.5 MHz frequency was formerly used by WCIZ until the late 1990's.

On February 6, 2008, K-Rock purchased the naming rights to the K-Rock Centre for 10 years at $3.3 million. [ [ The Whig Standard - Ontario, CA ] ]
