In 2008, CIUR-FM was licensed by the CRTC to operate at 104.7 FM.[1]

The station began testing its signal in early 2009, and officially began broadcasting on December 14 of that year.[2] The station launched with a Rhythmic/Urban contemporary format aimed primarily, but not exclusively, at First Nations youth, and was branded as "Streetz 104.7."

On April 7, 2014, CIUR-FM rebranded as Rhythm 104.7, and retained some on-air personalities.[3] The station changed its target demographic from 18–30 to a 25-40 range, with its focus shifting towards a more mainstream rhythmic CHR format.[3] CIUR was the second Rhythmic CHR station in Canada, the other being CFXJ in Toronto.

On July 9, 2016, at midnight, CIUR-FM flipped to country, branded as Now Country 104.7 FM.
