CKGS-FM is a French-language Canadian radio station located in Saguenay, Quebec. The station serves the borough of La Baie.

Owned and operated by Attraction Radio, it broadcasts on 105.5 MHz with an effective radiated power of 6,000 watts ( class A). The station has an adult contemporary format as part of Cogeco's Rythme FM network. It is better known to be the home of controversial host Louis Champagne since November 2010.

The station was originally licensed by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission in March 2007. However, because the applicant had requested the 99.9 FM frequency, which was adjacent to CKAJ-FM's newly licensed rebroadcaster on 99.7, the license was made conditional on the applicant submitting a new application for the use of a different frequency. CKGS-FM has later submitted an application to use 105.5 MHz, which was approved by the CRTC in August 2008.

On August 2, 2010, CKGS-FM applied to the CRTC to add a transmitter at Chicoutimi which would operate at 105.9 MHz. This application was denied on December 13, 2010.

On July 3, 2012, 9202-1617 Québec inc. received approval from the CRTC to change CKGS-FM's frequency from 105.5 MHz to 105.7 MHz; as of December 2014, the station has yet to relocate its signal to the new frequency. That same year, the station would be sold to its current owners, Attraction Radio.

In November 2014, it was announced that CKGS-FM and sister station CKRS-FM would join Rythme FM starting February 9, 2015; this followed the CRTC's approval of CKRS's format change, which sought an Adult Contemporary format and a reduction in local talk programming.
