CJXY-FM is a Canadianmarker radio station, broadcasting at 107.9 FM and serving the Hamilton, Ontariomarker market, but licensed to the nearby city of Burlingtonmarker. The station broadcasts an active rock format as Y108.

History

The station was originally launched in 1948 as FM 94.1 CHML, a simulcast of AM station CHMLmarker. The simulcast was subsequently dropped in the 1950s, leaving the station silent. The owners relaunched the FM signal on the 95.3 frequency in 1964, with distinct programming from its AM sister station. In 1967 the station adopted the new callsign CKDS, in honour of company founder Kenneth D. Soble who had died in 1966.

In 1974, CHML and CKDS were purchased by ML Radio, a division of what was to become Western International Communications. In 1991, CKDS adopted the CJXY (Y95.3) callsign and a rock music format.

In 1999, CHML and CJXY were acquired by Corus Entertainment. The following year, CJXY swapped frequencies with Corus' CING, taking over CING's former 107.9 frequency; at the same time it changed its moniker to Y108.
