History of Mix 97
The station began its transmission as CJBQ FM in 1962 and moved to its current call sign in 1978. The former CJBQ call sign currently belongs to its sister channel, CJBQ. CIGL call sign featured essentially a “Beautiful Music” format playing many instrumental renditions of popular songs by artists including Nelson Riddle, Richard Clayderman, Percy Faith, Frank Mills, and Floyd Cramer until 1995. Throughout the 1980s, the popularity of the Beautiful Music format decreased all around North America. The softer rock vocal music was added, such as light songs by Glenn Medieros, Kenny Rogers, and many others. FM was rebranded as Mix 97 on July 1, 1995, and flipped to the current format. Quinte Broadcasting received CRTC permission to decrease the broadcasting radiated power from 50,000 to 18,000 watts. It also increases the effective antenna height above average terrain from 48.5 to 121 meters. Quinte Broadcasting did amend the existing coordinates of the transmitter site.
