CJYC-FM is a Canadian radio station broadcasting from Saint John, New Brunswick at 98.9 MHz. It is owned and operated by the Maritime Broadcasting System. Kool 98 plays "Saint John's Greatest Hits" and was known as C98 until August 2006 and 98.9 Big John FM until August 2013.
The station began broadcasting in 1965 as CFBC-FM, the first FM station in New Brunswick. CFBC-FM was a companion to CFBC AM. In the early 1980s, CFBC-FM adopted its current callsign. On April 10, 1992, the CRTC denied an application by Fundy II Ltd. to change CJYC-FM's frequency from 98.9 MHz to 94.1 MHz and to change the effective radiated power from 50,000 to 100,000 watts. MBS purchased CFBC and CJYC in 1997 from Fundy Communications. On February 7, 2000, CJYC-FM received CRTC approval to decrease the effective radiated power from 50,000 to 12,000 watts.
For several years, CJYC-FM and, sister station, CFBC's studios were on Carleton Street in Uptown Saint John. In the mid-1990s, CJYC-FM and CFBC moved their studios and offices to 199 Chesley Drive. In 1997, CJYC-FM and CFBC moved into MBS's studios and offices on Union Street, where they are as of August 2012.
Unionized staff at CJYC and two other MBS stations in Saint John went on strike in June 2012, that continues today, triggering calls for a boycott of the station’s advertisers  and leading strikers to set up an internet radio station.
