History[edit]

CFXE signed on April 4, 1968, as CJYR on 970 kHz, with 10,000 watts power. In 2005, the station was bought by Newcap Broadcasting and was relaunched as The Fox. In 2007, the station was moved to 94.3 MHz with 11,000 watts power.[1]

On September 29, 2010, the station received CRTC approval to move CFXE-FM's rebroadcast transmitter, CFXG AM 1230 Grande Cache from the AM dial to the FM dial.[2] Grande Cache's new FM transmitter now operates at 93.3 MHz known as CFXG-FM.

In July 2017, the station rebranded as "Real Country West", and flipped to country.
