On July 24, Student Media, University of Windsor was authorized to operate a carrier current AM station on 660 kHz with power of 20 watts.


The University of Windsor Student Alliance launched CJAM 91.5 in November. Power was 50 watts. The station had previously operated as carrier current AM station CSRW. Studios were at the university; the transmitter at North Huron Church Street and Wyandotte Road West.


On October 5, CJAM was granted an increase in effective radiated power, from 50 watts to 456 watts average (914 watts maximum). Antenna height was 49.4 metres.


On March 26, the CRTC approved the application by Student Media, University of Windsor to amend the broadcasting licence for community-based campus station CJAM-FM, in order to change the frequency from 91.5 MHz to 99.1 MHz, to decrease the maximum average radiated power from 914 to 456 watts, and to change the antenna pattern from directional to omni-directional.

At midnight on October 5, CJAM-FM was scheduled to make the move from 91.5 MHz to 99.1 MHz.

Station manager was Adam Fox. 


On August 31, the CRTC administratively renewed the licence for CJAM-FM to December 31, 2011.


Adam Fox left CJAM as manager to become content director at CKUA Edmonton.


The CRTC approved an application by CJAM-FM to change the antenna’s radiation pattern from non-directional to directional and by increasing the average ERP from 456 to 1,007 watts (max. ERP from 456 to 2,084 watts) and the EHAAT from 49.5 to 51 metres.
