CFGM-FM is a Canadian radio station that broadcasts a community radio/tourist information programing at 102.7 FM in Caledon, Ontario.

Owned by Rick Sargent, the station was licenced on October 15, 2007.[1]

On April 9, 2008, the station proposed to add an FM transmitter at Caledon to broadcast the programming of CJFB-FM Bolton in order to serve the population of Caledon. The licensee is seeking to convert CFGM-FM 102.7 (Caledon) to a transmitter of CJFB-FM. That application was denied on July 31, 2008.[2]

CFGM was a former call sign of a radio station in Toronto, which is known today as CFMJ.

On January 29, 2009, Rick Sargent applied for a broadcasting licence to operate an English-language FM commercial radio programming undertaking in Caledon on the frequency 102.7 MHz.[3] The station received CRTC approval on June 17, 2009.[4] In August 2009, the station's branding was known as The View with an adult contemporary/variety hits format.

On March 14, 2012, the CRTC approved the application by Haliburton Broadcasting Group Inc. for authority to acquire from Rick Sargent the assets of the English-language commercial radio stations CJFB-FM Bolton and CFGM-FM Caledon, Ontario, and for broadcasting licences to continue the operation of the stations.[5]

On April 23, 2012 Vista Broadcast Group, which owns a number of radio stations in western Canada, announced a deal to acquire Haliburton Broadcasting, in cooperation with Westerkirk Capital.[6] The transaction was approved by the CRTC on October 19, 2012.[7]
