History[edit]

In 2008, CIUR-FM was licensed by the CRTC to operate at 104.7 FM.[2]

The station began testing its signal in early 2009, and officially began broadcasting on December 14 of that year.[3] The station launched with a Rhythmic/Urban contemporary format aimed primarily towards younger audiences, but not exclusively, at First Nations youth, and was branded as "Streetz 104.7."

On April 7, 2014, CIUR-FM rebranded as Rhythm 104.7, and retained some on-air personalities.[4] The station changed its target demographic from 18-30 to a 25-40 range, with its focus shifting towards a more mainstream rhythmic CHR format.[4] CIUR was the second Rhythmic CHR station in Canada, the other being CFXJ in Toronto.

On July 9, 2016, at Midnight, CIUR-FM flipped to country, branded as "Now Country 104.7 FM".
