930 KIXX Country Online Radio:

Radio Newfoundland 930 KIXX Country – CJYQ is an AM Live radio station. It is broadcasting at 930 kHz in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.

Newcap Radio is owner of this radio. It is a Canadian live radio station that is broadcasting 247. Launched by CHM Limited on October 15, 1983, Six-FM originally carried a country format known as Country 99 FM and later in the 1980s as KIXX Country.

Newcap acquired from CHIX and sister station CJYQ CHUM in 1989,  and the brand was somewhat transformed into a KIXX country. In 1991, the studios moved from Duckworth Street to 208 Kenmont Road (it now occupies the Capital Hotel).

On February 17, 2002, NewCap converted its newly acquired VOCM-FMK from Hot AC to Classic. As an unexpected side effect, CKIX’s audience has declined significantly.

Moreover, the rival station CHOZ-FM, which at the time carried a combination of CHR and classic rocks, was chosen to hold that hybrid format instead of the former “magic” niche.As a result, on June 26 of that year, Newcap dropped the long-running country format of the Sixes as a top 40 / CHR with 99.1 hits of FM.

Originally, the morning show featured Paul Maggie and Erin Chase, but by the summer of 2003, longtime CHOZ host Randy Snow was able to seduce her.

The country music format has moved to VOCM, matching other AM stations in the province’s Newcap. The “KIXX Country” branding will eventually be restored on Carbonier’s CHVO-FM and St. John’s CJYQ.
