NRJ (previously known as énergie) is a network of French-language contemporary hit radio outlets broadcasting throughout the province of Quebec and portions of eastern Ontario, in Eastern Canada. They offer a personality-driven mix of francophone and anglophone pop hits and cutting-edge programs, catering to a young adult audience. Although the flagship station is CKMF-FM Montreal, the 10 stations in the network usually have their own talent for each of their own markets. They are owned by Astral Media.

The énergie network's previous logo

Most, but not all, NRJ stations broadcast in the same markets as Astral's adult contemporary network RockDétente.

On July 6, 2009, Astral Media and European group NRJ Radio announced a deal to rebrand the Énergie network as "NRJ", effective August 24. (The French pronunciations of "NRJ" and "énergie" are nearly identical.) Astral will retain full ownership of the stations.[1][2]

Astral also programs a satellite radio channel, currently branded as Énergie2, for broadcast on Sirius Canada and Sirius Satellite Radio, on channel 89. This channel offers essentially the same format as the terrestrial network, and is hosted by Richard Fortin and Nicolas Wilson. It is not yet clear if the satellite channel will be included in the "NRJ" rebranding.

For the network, the Astral Media IDs usually use the jingle packages from sister classic rocker CHOM-FM Montreal, as well as mainstream rockers CJAY-FM in Calgary and 100.3 The Bear in Edmonton rather than Astral's jingle packages used on the hot AC-formatted Virgin Radio stations and top 40 stations Vibe 98.5 in Calgary and Hot 103 in Winnipeg.
