On January 9, 2007 CJZZ-FM added Dolby Pro Logic noise reduction to its signal.

In September 2006, Corus Entertainment, already owner of Winnipeg's CJOB and CJKR-FM, [http://www.cnw.ca/en/releases/archive/October2006/02/c4134.html announced] it would buy CJZZ and Kitchener's CKBT-FM, from CanWest, subject to CRTC approval. The transaction was approved by the CRTC on July 6 2007. Corus Entertainment officially took ownership of CJZZ on July 29, 2007.

On November 5, 2007, the station went on the air for the first time as the newly rebranded Groove FM, as Canwest owned the name "Cool" and was still being used for the now defunct CoolTV. Its call letters were also changed with the station now known as "CJGV-FM". The format remains unchanged.
