On July 4, Jean-Pierre Coallier’s third attempt to launch a new FM station in Montréal was approved. Mr. Coallier, owner of CIME-FM Sainte-Adèle and CIEL-FM, was granted a licence for a classical music station, operating on 99.5 MHz with an effective radiated power of 8,700 watts. Coallier’s company to be incorporated, became known as Radio-Classique Montréal inc.

 

1998

CJPX Radio-Classique signed on the air on June 25.

2010

On November 9, the CRTC renewed CJPX's licence to August 31, 2014. This short-term renewal would enable the Commission to review, at an earlier date, the licensee's compliance with the Radio Regulations, 1986 and its conditions of licence.

2015

On August 26, the CRTC approved, with certain changes to the value of the transaction and the tangible benefits package, an application by Média ClassiQ inc. for authority to acquire from Radio-Classique Montréal inc. and Radio-Classique Québec inc. the assets of the French-language specialty commercial radio programming undertakings CJPX-FM Montréal and CJSQ-FM Québec. Média ClassiQ was wholly owned by Marignan inc., a corporation controlled by Gregory Charles. The Commission also approved an application by Média ClassiQ to amend CJSQ-FM’s conditions of licence to operate it under the same conditions as CJPX-FM. Harmonizing the conditions of licence for the two stations would allow for synergies and help rectify CJSQ-FM’s financial situation.
