The station was given approval by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission on July 9, 2007.[1] On November 27, 2007, the station signed on and went into testing mode. On March 3, 2008 at 9 a.m., CJSP ended their testing mode and officially launched as Country 92.7 CJSP and became a full-service FM station. The station featured Southwestern Ontario radio vet Cordell Green in mornings and Randy Reeves as its imaging voice.

At Midnight on January 4, 2011, Country 92.7 CJSP came to an end and was replaced with Variety Hits "92-7 Max-FM", a similar format to now defunct 93.1 Doug-FM in nearby Detroit. All personalities were dropped from the lineup, with the exception morning hosts Cordell Green and Laura Carney. The rest of the day remained automated.

Country 95.9 & 92-7[edit]

On July 31, 2012 at 5am, after a mass budget cut at Blackburn Radio, Max-FM dropped its Variety Hits format and began simulcasting CJWF-FM in Windsor as "Country 95.9 & 92-7". Morning hosts Cordell Green and Kevin Black remained with the station. Black now only reads newscasts as opposed to being a co-host.

In April 2015, the station began phasing out 92.7 out of its branding and began to focus on nearby Windsor, Ontario as "Windsor's Country 95.9". The station's imaging will only occasionally reference CJSP as "92.7 in Leamington."
