CJIT-FM is a Canadian radio station that broadcasts a contemporary hit radio format on the frequency 106.7 FM in Lac-Mégantic, Quebec.

History[edit]

The station originally began broadcasting in 1968 as CKFL broadcasting at 1340 AM, moved to 1400 AM in 1972 and then to its current FM frequency in 2000 as CJIT.[1]

In March 2007, Les Productions du temps perdu inc. received permission to acquire CJIT-FM from 9063-0104 Québec inc., doing business under the name of Radio Gaé-Rit Lac Mégantic.[2] In April 2012, the station was sold to the Montréal-based Attraction Radio group.[3]

On July 6, 2013 the station was knocked temporarily off-air as a result of the Lac-Mégantic derailment which destroyed much of the town centre[4] but did return with coverage of the disaster.
