Description: CJOJ-FM is a Canadian radio station that airs a classic hits music format at 95.5 FM in Belleville, Ontario.On November 13, 1990, Twigg Communications Ltd. received Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission approval to operate a new FM station at 102.3 MHz in Belleville, Ontario. The new station would offer a format targeted at 12 to 34 year olds (Group II hard rock). On October 30, 1992, the CRTC approved an application by Belleville Radio Limited to move CJOJ-FM's frequency from 102.3 MHz to its current 95.5 MHz frequency. CJOJ-FM began on-air tests in October 1993 and signed on the air as OJ 95 on December 1 that same year. The 95.5 FM was once occupied by CJBC-FM-1, which moved to a new frequency at 94.3 FM. The former 102.3 FM frequency is now occupied by CKJJ.On July 26, 2002, the CRTC approved the application by John Sheratt to acquire CJOJ-FM from Belleville Radio Ltd. and CHCQ-FM from CHCQ Ltd. Anthony Zwigg, owned both Belleville Radio Limited and CHCQ Limited. Mr. Sherratt, had been assisting Mr. Zwigg in establishing CHCQ-FM and in the operation of CJOJ-FM. As he became more involved in these activities, Mr. Sherratt decided to make an offer to Mr. Zwigg for the purchase of the two stations. Sherratt’s company was Starboard Communications Ltd. On October 23, 2002, Starboard Communications received CRTC approval to decrease CJOJ-FM's power from 50,000 watts to 42,000 watts ERP, and to relocate the transmitter to a site near Oak Lake, approximately 25 kilometres west of the existing site. On February 7, 2003, CJOJ-FM dropped its 70s, 80s, 90s and now format to classic hits branded as 95.5 Hits FM with some of today's music in their playlist.CJOJ-FM is currently owned by Starboard Communications, in common with Belleville country music station CHCQ-FM.
