Approval to broadcast as CFBX, at 92.5 on the FM band, was granted on February 16, and we cleared the remaining hurdles and officially hit the airwaves at 0800 on April 2, 2001. The official grand opening was held in conjunction with UCC’s Back-to-school BBQ in September 2001.

Shortly after UCC became Thompson Rivers University (TRU) in 2005, the site was upgraded to include a link that allows visitors from around the world to listen to the radio station, live on the Internet.

After a major upgrade in 2006, the website for The X was rebuilt by Andrew Sahaydak in 2017 and launched to include a number of new features, most notably our blog page.
