Both stations had a rock format.With limited stations in Canberra, in 1994 Australian Radio Network and Southern Cross Austereo decided to work together. They joined the FM stations as a partnership and sold the two AM stations to Capital Radio Network. Kix 106 became Mix 106.3 with an adult contemporary format whilst FM104 became a top 40 station. With the end of the Kix branding, Mix 106.3 changed its callsign to 1CBR, an abbreviation of Canberra.
