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