CJOI-FM is a French-language Canadian radio station located in Rimouski, Quebec.

Owned and operated by Bell Media, it broadcasts on 102.9 MHz with an effective radiated power of 33,600 watts (class B) using an omnidirectional antenna.

The station has an adult contemporary format and is a member of the Rouge FM (formerly RockDétente) network since June 2005, when a deal was made to transfer ownership of some stations between Corus and Astral. Originally a Corus station, CJOI is now owned by Astral Media.

Originally known as CFLP when it opened in 1978 as an AM station on 1000 kHz (and identified itself as "Radio Mille"), the station moved to the FM band in late 2000, due to serious problems in nighttime coverage resulting from a very directional signal necessary to protect WMVP 1000 in Chicago, Illinois. The station switched to its current CJOI-FM call sign when it moved from AM to FM and changed its format from talk radio to adult contemporary (and abandoned its Radiomédia affiliation).[1]

On August 18, 2011, at 4:00 p.m. EDT, all RockDétente stations, including CJOI-FM, rebranded as Rouge FM. The last song under the RockDétente branding was Pour que tu m'aimes encore by Celine Dion, followed by a tribute of the branding. The first song under Rouge FM was I Gotta Feeling by Black Eyed Peas.
