History[edit]

CFXY was launched on July 15, 1983, as CKHJ-FM and operated at 93.1 on the FM dial. In 1992, CKHJ-FM received CRTC approval to change its frequency from 93.1 to 105.3 FM.[1]

In June 2000, CIHI (1260 AM) changed its callsign and switched frequencies with its co-owned country-format station, CKHJ, which was at 105.3 FM.

The station was owned by Radio One Ltd. until 1999, when it was sold to Telemedia Communications. Telemedia sold the stations to Astral Media in 2002, which was then acquired by Bell Media as of 2013.

The station's transmitter is at Hamtown Corner, north west of Fredericton.
