On April 15, a campus/community FM licence was awarded to Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières. The new station would broadcast with an effective radiated power of 250 watts on a frequency of 89.1 MHz. 104 hours of local programming would be produced each week and the station would service the student community of the University.


CFOU-FM signed on the air.


On February 13, the CRTC approved the application by Radio campus des étudiants de l’Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières to change the authorized contours of the community-based campus radio programming undertaking CFOU-FM Trois-Rivières. The licensee proposed to increase the effective radiated power from 250 watts to 3,000 watts and to decrease the antenna height. The station’s authorized contours would be expanded significantly as a result of the proposed modification. With respect to the concerns raised by the interveners regarding potential interference, the Commission noted that the Department of Industry found the licensee’s proposal to be conditionally technically acceptable. 

Studios and offices are noted at this time as being at 3351, boul des Forges.


On August 31, the CRTC administratively renewed the licence for CFOU-FM to December 31, 2011.


On August 28, the CRTC administratively renewed CFOU-FM’s licence until December 31, 2012. On December 21, the licence was renewed to August 31, 2017.
