CIUX-FM is a radio station licensed to Uxbridge, Ontario. Owned by Torres Radio, it broadcasts an adult contemporary format branded as Hits 105.5 FM.

History[edit]

On April 3, 2012, Frank Torres, on behalf of a corporation to be incorporated, received approval from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to operate CIUX-FM. [1] The applicant indicated that its proposed new station would be a first radio service for the community of Uxbridge.[citation needed]

The station's launch was delayed into 2015 by several disputes, including Bell briefly opposing the station's co-location on one of its towers, and conflicts with another station owner who objected to the new station,[2] the station launched in September 2015 as 105.5 Hits FM. Veteran broadcaster and Uxbridge native Dan Pollard was hired as an on-air personality, hosting the morning and noon-hour programs.[3]
