CJCJ-FM is an hot adult contemporary radio station broadcasting from Woodstock, New Brunswick, Canada. The station operates at 104.1 MHz/FM. It is currently owned and operated by Bell Media.

History[edit]

CJCJ originally began broadcasting on 920 kHz in July 1959, and moved to the FM band in the early 2000s.[1] Originally owned by Carleton-Victoria Broadcasting Limited, it was acquired in 1991 by Radio One Ltd.[2] In 1999, Radio One was acquired by Telemedia, and in 2002, Telemedia was purchased by Standard Broadcasting. CJCJ was one of the stations that Standard in turn sold to Astral Media.

In 1989, Carleton-Victoria Broadcasting Co. Ltd. received approval from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to operate two low-power AM transmitters at Plaster Rock on 990 kHz (40 watts), and Perth/Andover on 1140 kHz with 40 watts.[3] These transmitters would rebroadcast the programs of CJCJ 920 Woodstock.

In 1998, Carleton-Victoria Broadcasting Co. Ltd. received approval from the CRTC to add an FM rebroadcaster at Grand Falls to operate on the frequency of 93.5 MHz.[4] On June 7, 2000, Telemedia Radio Atlantic Ltd. received CRTC approval to add a transmitter for CIKX-FM Grand Falls at Plaster Rock, using the facilities of the CJCJ Woodstock rebroadcasting transmitter, CJCJ-2 Plaster Rock. As a result of the change, the CJCJ rebroadcasters CJCJ-1 Perth/Andover and CJCJ-2 Plaster Rock were deleted.[5]

In May 2009, CJCJ-FM changed formats from EZ Rock (adult contemporary) to its current format.
