CFDA-FM is a Canadian radio station, broadcasting a soft adult contemporary format at 101.9 FM in Victoriaville, Quebec. It shares the programming of Réseau des Appalaches's Passion-Rock network with sister station CKLD-FM in Thetford Mines.

The stations air the same programming at all times, although both stations produce a portion of the shared broadcast schedule from separate studios. Their contemporary hit radio sister station CFJO-FM also produces programming in both cities, although it serves the region from a single 100-kilowatt transmitter.

History[edit]

The station was launched by Radio Victoriaville on October 19, 1951, airing on AM 1380. It was sold to François Labbé's Radio-Mégantic in 1970, becoming a Radio-Canada affiliate as part of the Réseau des Appalaches from 1972 to 1979.

The station subsequently converted to its current FM frequency in 1999.[1]

Pierre Bruneau, the current anchor of TVA's daytime newscasts, worked for CFDA early in his career.
