History[edit]

On May 11, 2012, Newcap received approval from the CRTC to operate a new English language FM radio station in Fredericton, New Brunswick at 93.1 FM.[1]

A tourist information radio station, CIRC-FM, which is owned by Instant Information Services formerly operated at 93.3 FM which is an adjacent frequency to 93.1 FM. According to CIRC-FM's Wikipedia article, the station had ceased broadcasting in 2010.

On February 7, 2013, the CRTC approved Newcap's application to modify the technical parameters of CIHI-FM by changing the class of its licence from B to C1, by decreasing the station’s average effective radiated power (ERP) from 50,000 to 42,000 watts (and by increasing the maximum ERP from 50,000 to 100,000 watts), by decreasing the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 150.0 to 137.5 metres, by changing the radiation pattern of the antenna from non-directional to directional, and by relocating the antenna and transmitter from Hamtown Corner (the original site in the application), to Mount Hope.[2]

CIHI-FM first launched on Monday June 24, 2013, as Up 93.1 with an Adult hits format. The first song played on "Up!" was "Don't Stop" by Fleetwood Mac.
