CIMH-FM was the first local commercial FM station in the market, with its emphasis on local and regional news. The broadcaster, Radio FM du Nord, was jointly owned by Gagnon and his business partners, M. Paquet and Jacques Beaulieu. Ownership later changed with Gagnon owning 50.1% and Beaulieu retaining 49.9%.

In 1980, CIMH-FM was authorized to increase effective radiated power to 100,000 watts.

The licence for CIMH-FM was revoked at the request of the licensee and left the air in 1982.[citation needed]
