It was rebranded as Y105 on Aug 28, 1995 – becoming Young Country station. The country format was overtaken by 101.1 Smith Falls on Jan 9, 2004 and the channel was renamed as KISS 105.3 adopting Hot AC format; CISS-FM were the new call letters. Format became more rhythmic and shed more AC moving on from pre-1999 albums as it faced a tough competition from CIHT. The music from 90’s once again entered in the studios of the KiSS 105.3 in Sep 2016. 90’s to NOW! is the catchphrase. CISS-FM made a slight change in its branding to become KiSS 105.3.
