CHNK-FM is a radio station in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, broadcasting at 100.7 FM. Owned by Newcap Broadcasting, the station airs a country format branded as HANK FM.

History

The station was originally launched in 2002 as CHNR-FM, a nostalgia station owned by CKVN Radiolink System Inc. It was acquired by Newcap Radio in 2005, and adopted an adult album alternative format on December 26 of that year. The station then adopted its current format and branding on December 26, 2006.

In September 2007, CHNK-FM successfully applied to the CRTC for a power increase, citing reception difficulties in the market. On December 6, the station was granted the power increase, taking 100.7 FM from 1,300 watts to an average effective radiated power of 60,200 watts.[1]

On December 15, 2008 HANK FM announced that radio veteran Trevor "Moose" Stoyko will be joining the Morning Show lineup. Moose in the Morning can be heard every weekday on HANK FM from 5:30am-10am.
