CJFX-FM is a Canadian radio station broadcasting at 98.9 FM in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. The station also broadcasts at 102.5 FM in Inverness County, Nova Scotia. The station has been broadcasting since March 25, 1943. The station is owned & operated by Atlantic Broadcasting Co. Ltd. and currently broadcasts an adult contemporary format branded as 98.9 X-FM with the current slogan “Nothing but hits”.

CJFX began broadcasting on March 25, 1943, and continued on-air at 580 on the AM dial for sixty years. CJFX was a pioneer in broadcasting educational programming and live music in its early years, while boasting strong community support for its radio content, including pop, rock, country, Celtic and traditional music. While on 580, it was a variety station (country, pop, rock, Celtic etc.).

The 98.9 FM signal first went on the air in 1998 in order to correct coverage issues with the AM signal [1] and rebroadcast the AM programming. In 2003, CJFX was authorized to make 98.9 FM the main signal, increase its power and simulcast its programming on 580 AM for ninety days. At this time, CJFX changed its on-air branding to “98.9 X-FM” with an adult contemporary music format.

The more powerful FM signal was implemented in early 2003 and the AM 580 signal was shut down for good in June of that year. Over the next few years, the station’s music format had become more of a hybrid mainstream adult contemporary/hot adult contemporary sound. In recent years, the station began to add classic hits.

CJFX also operates a transmitter located in Inverness, Nova Scotia at 102.5 FM in order to correct coverage issues that were being created as a result of the AM transmitter being shut down.
