CIUR-FM is rhythmic contemporary radio station branded as Rhythm 104.7. The station broadcasts from 1507 Inkster Blvd. in Winnipeg, Manitoba with sister station CICY-FM.

History[edit]

In 2008 CIUR-FM was licensed by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission.[1]

After testing its signal in November and early December 2009, the station officially began broadcasting on December 14, 2009.[2] The station launched with a rhythmic contemporary format aimed primarily, but not exclusively, at First Nations youth.

On April 7, 2014, CIUR-FM rebranded as Rhythm 104.7, and retained some on-air personalities.[3] The station changed its target demographic from 18-30 to a 25-40 range, with its focus shifting towards a more mainstream rhythmic CHR format.[3]This is the second Rhythmic CHR station in Canada, the other being CFXJ in Toronto.
