Standard Broadcasting of Toronto was denied to acquire CKDS and CHML-AM in 1970, however, the Radio ML Ltd. was permitted to purchase the radios from Maple Leaf Broadcasting Co. Ltd. on July 8, 1971. The call sings were changed to CJXY and classic rock format was introduced on Y95 previously airing AC. Corus Entertainment acquired the station in 2000. Once again the frequency was changed to 107.9 MHz following a frequency flip between CING and CJXY. World Class Rock is the catchphrase of the channel.
