History

On the 27 February 1988, Mix 106.3, then known as Kix 106, together with FM104 (now known as simply 104.7), went to air as Australia's first supplementary FM licences (also the first commercial FM licences in Australia since 1980).

Kix 106 was a supplementary licence of Canberra AM station 2CC, and FM104 a supplementary licence of AM station 2CA.

In the mid-1990s, due to the AM stations dwindling audience and the increasing popularity of the music based FM stations, ARN - owner of Mix 106.3 & 2CC, and Austereo - owner of 104.7 & 2CA, merged to form a joint venture ownership of both FM stations - Canberra FM Pty Ltd. The AM stations were sold off and moved to other premises.
