Hurricane Ivan reached Grand Cayman on 11 September, ironically 16 years to the day from when the last hurricane struck the Islands After debris was cleaned up and removed, work continued on the station. [4] The first official day of broadcasting was 11 April 2005 with the stations final names being Hot 104.1, 106.1 KISS-FM, and X107.1.
