Radio Drummond Ltée., owner of CHRD-AM, received CRTC approval on July 29, to operate a new FM station at Dummondville, operating on 104.3 MHz with ERP of 50,000 watts and EHAAT of 132 feet (omnidirectional). The commission felt the new station would provide significantly different service for listeners in the area.
CFDM-FM signed on the air from studios and offices at 449 Heriot Street.
On December 21, the sale of Radio Drummond Ltée. to Radio Inter-Cite Inc. was approved. Franklin Delaney, Maurice Sigouin, Gerard Lemieux, Jacques Sigouin and Mrs. G. Delaney would each hold one common share to qualify as directors. CFDM and CHRD continued to operate under the Radio Drummond Ltée. name. Maurice Sigouin was president and J. A. Savoie was manager.
CFDM received a 6-month licence renewal from the CRTC pending purchase of the station by the CBC.
CFDM-FM was sold to the CBC/SRC and eventually became CBFX-FM-1.

Effective September 1st 2019, we will only be adding new material to these station histories in exceptional circumstances. Our intent to chronicle the early days of these radio and television stations has been achieved, and many new sources and technologies, from the CRTC website to Wikipedia, and others, are now regularly providing new information in these areas.
