Owned and operated by Radio Rimouski,[1] part of Groupe Radio Simard, it broadcast on 93.3 MHz with an effective radiated power of 18,197 watts using an omnidirectional antenna (class C1).

The station had a hot adult contemporary format under the FM 93 branding; although some programming from Cogeco-owned CHMP-FM and CKOI-FM in Montreal was aired.

The station received CRTC approval in 2006 [2] and went on the air on October 9, 2007 at 7 a.m.; part of its programming comes from the Cogeco Diffusion network. The station's original call sign (as assigned in November 2006) was CIEL-FM-6, but it was changed to CFYX-FM in May 2007.[3]
