History CKDX is a Canadian radio station, broadcasting at 88.5 FM in the Greater Toronto Area. Although officially licensed to Newmarket, the station's studios are located in Toronto. The station broadcasts a pop standards format with the brand name The Jewel of the Dial. The station was launched February 28, 1980 as AM 1480 CKAN, broadcasting from 6 am to midnight with an adult contemporary format. The music format changed to country by 1984. In 1986, the station switched to a Top 40 format, and in 1988 the station began broadcasting 24 hours a day. The station shut down on March 17, 1992 due to financial problems, and resumed broadcasting on May 17 when the problems were resolved. In December of that year, the station adopted the CKDX callsign. CKDX subsequently moved to the FM band in 1994, branding itself as The Phoenix. The station went through a number of format changes in the next several years, adopting a dance music format in 1997, returning to country music in 1999, rhythmic oldies in 2000 and its current format "Foxy 88.5" in 2002. The station is 70% owned by Evanov Radio Group, and 30 percent by the private numbered company 1093641 Ontario Ltd. In early April 2007, "Foxy 88.5" became "88.5 The Jewel". It adopted the "Jewel" branding shortly after the launch of sister station CJWL in Ottawa, which is also branded as "The Jewel".
