CIMH-FM was a radio station which operated on 94.1 MHz/FM in Sept-Îles, Quebec, Canada. Signing on in August 1980, the station was owned by Radio FM du Nord.

History[edit]

The station was established in 1979 by Clement Gagnon, initially with effective radiated power of 82,500 watts. CIMH-FM was the first local commercial FM station in the market, with 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, though around its 1980 sign-on, Paquet's transfer of his 33% ownership of the company to the remaining shareholders was approved, 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.

Closure[edit]

The licence for CIMH-FM was revoked at the request of the licensee and left the air in 1982.[citation needed]

The 94.1 frequency would later be occupied by CKCN-FM, after that station's transfer from 560 kHz in 1998.[1]
