CJCW is a Canadian radio station broadcasting at 590 kHz in Sussex, New Brunswick. The station plays an adult contemporary format and is owned by the Maritime Broadcasting System. It has been on the air since June 1975.

History[edit]

Island Radio was granted approval on November 8, 1975 to broadcast in Sussex, New Brunswick with a power of 500 watts during the day, and 250 watts at night. Overnight programming was provided by CKCW-FM in Moncton, New Brunswick.

On June 15, 1975, CJCW first began broadcasting. On April 7, 1978, the daytime operating power was increased to 1000 watts. Night operation was left at 250 watts.

In 1986 the station was acquired by Maritime Broadcasting System.

In 2000, CJCW switched to full-time local programming instead of simulcasting CKCW during overnight periods. The station was branded as "Favourites 590 CJCW".

On September 10, 2007, the station (along with sister stations CKNB, CFAN-FM and CKDH-FM) was rebranded to "590 CJCW" with "Your community, your radio station" as the positioning statement.
