CIQM-FM is an FM radio station broadcasting at 97.5 FM in London, Ontario, Canada, branded as 97.5FM EZ Rock. The station plays an adult contemporary format branded as EZ Rock. 97.5FM EZ Rock is owned by Astral Media and its sister stations include CJBX, CJBK and CKSL. It is one of three Canadian callsigns with "QM" in the name, and the adult contemporary format (another station sharing the same "QM" and AC format is CHQM-FM Vancouver).

CIQM operates on a frequency once occupied by CKO from 1977 to 1989.

CIQM originally operated as "Q103" at 103.1 FM (now the home of CFHK-FM "Fresh FM" in St. Thomas) from its sign-on in 1986 until moving in 1993 to the 97.5 frequency vacated by CKO. For many years, the station was known as "Q97.5," even after taking on the "EZ Rock" trademark; in 2006, the "Q" was dropped and the station became known as simply "97.5, London's EZ Rock." 97.5 currently stands as the most listened to station in London, its country sister station BX93 is the second most favoured station.

Former CIQM logo
CIQM originally operated as "Q103" at 103.1 FM (now the home of CFHK-FM "Fresh FM" in St. Thomas) from its sign-on in 1986 [1] until moving in 1993 to the 97.5 frequency vacated by CKO. [2] For many years, the station was known as "Q97.5," even after taking on the "EZ Rock" trademark; in 2006, the "Q" was dropped and the station became known as simply "97.5, London's EZ Rock." 97.5 currently stands as the most listened to station in London, its country sister station BX93 is the second most favoured station.

On September 6, 2010 CIQM FM underwent several changes including a tweak in format, a new logo and new on-air staff. The station moved from its 24-year-old adult contemporary format to hot adult contemporary, but is now featuring current pop hits mixed with retro hits (80s & 90s).
