CJSS is a Canadian radio station, which broadcasts at 101.9 FM in Cornwall, Ontario. The station broadcasts an active rock format branded as Rock 101.9.

The station was launched in 1945 by the city's daily newspaper, the "Cornwall Standard Freeholder", with the call sign CKSF. In 1957, the newspaper also launched CKSF-FM. Two years later, the stations were acquired by Stanley Shankman, the owner of CJSS-TV, and both changed their callsigns to CJSS as well.

Two years later, Shenkman sold his broadcast holdings. The TV station was sold to Ottawa's CJOH-TV, and the radio stations were sold to the local Émard family.

The radio stations were subsequently acquired by Tri Co Broadcasting in 1978. Tri Co converted CJSS to the FM band in 1999. [ [http://www.crtc.gc.ca/archive/ENG/Decisions/1999/DB99-77.HTM Decision CRTC 99-77] ] CJSS' former frequency, 1220 AM, did not go dark, but changed to an adult standards format as CJUL.

After the flip from AM to the FM band in 1999, CJSS-FM was a country music station branded as Blaze 101.9 FM. On August 8, 2003, the station shifted to a classic rock format, and then to active rock in February 2007.

Both stations are now owned by Corus Entertainment, who acquired them in 2000.
