CJAY-FM (CJAY 92) is a Canadian radio station that broadcasts an active rock format at 92.1 FM in Calgary, Alberta. The station uses its on-air brand name as CJAY 92 and is owned by Bell Media. CJAY's studios are located in the CTV Calgary studios on Patina Rise SW in the Prominence Point neighborhood of Calgary, they operates repeater transmitters located in Banff and Invermere, British Columbia. Its founder was Ralph Connor, who moved to Calgary from Sudbury, Ontario to start the station.[1]

History[edit]

CJAY was owned by Standard Broadcasting until 2007, when Standard Radio was acquired by Astral from Standard Broadcasting due to Standard's exit from terrestrial broadcasting. As part of Astral's merger with Bell Media on 27 June 2013, CJAY is now owned by Bell Media.

By September 2010, CJAY changed its logo and slogan, as well as format from mainstream rock to active rock, similar to then-sister station CKQB-FM in Ottawa.

On 2 June 2018, CJAY's studios relocated from their Centre Street location where they had been for 15 years back to their original location on Broadcast Hill, while its transmitter is located at Old Banff Coach Road and 85 Street Southwest.

CJAY is currently home to Mornings with Jesse (Modz) and JD (Lewis), Ashleigh Darrach, Reaper and Chris Foord.
