Country 94.1 FM legally remembered as CHSJ-FM is a Saint John, based country music station owned by Acadia Broadcasting alongside sibling CHWV-FM. Launch of the station goes to back to 1927 when CFBO was set up by C.A. Munro Limited using a 50-watts transmitter on a frequency of 890 kHz. The frequency got changed to 1210 kHz while reducing power from 500 w to 100 w in 1933. New calls for the station were CHSJ and 1120 kHz became the new frequency in April 1934. Effective radiated power was incremented to 1,000 which came with the relocation of the studios to Coldbrook in 1935. The company incorporated by C.A. Munro in the same year was renamed as New Brunswick Broadcasting Co. The operations and reach of the radio was expanded to Central, Southern New Brunswick and Southwestern Nova Scotia in 1940. Post Havana Treaty the frequency of the channel was 1150 kHz. In 1945 the County 94 became a part of The Telegraph-Journal and Evening Times-Globe, the companies held by Irving Family.
