The C1 class was originally established by Pioneer Broadcasting Ltd in 1978. The first attempt (1978) of the licensee was in vain however, Pioneer was successful in its second attempt to get the permission of setting a full-time station on 1430 kHz with an ERP of 10,000 watts. Frank Valentini, a shareholder in the group was in office as the first General Manager of the CJXX. Central Alberta Broadcasting Ltd. on July 27, 1982 was granted the approval to acquire Pioneer Broadcasting Ltd. In 1985 the Alberta Broadcasting took the full control of CJXX. The ownership of the CJXX 93.1 FM once again changed when Monarch Broadcasting Ltd stepped up to acquire CJXX Grande Prairie and CKRD Red Deer. The frequency of the CJXX was changed from 1430 kHz to 840 kHz on February 15, 1991. The effective radiated power of the daytime was increased from 10,000 to 25,000 watts in 1995, however, wattage for the night remained unchanged. The year 1999 was marked with the approval of band change from 840 AM to 93.1 FM. On December 21, 2000 Jim Pattison Industries Ltd. received the approval to purchase a number of Monarch Broadcasting assets. The CRTC renewed the license of the Big Country 93.1 on November 30, 2010 validating it up to August 31, 2017.
