CFAO-FM was a radio station that operated at 94.7 FM in Alliston, Ontario, Canada. The station broadcast an adult contemporary music format.

Owned by Frank Rogers, on behalf of a corporation to be incorporated the station was licensed on July 28, 2008.[1][2]

In 2008, Rogers was licensed to operate a second radio station at Beeton with the callsign CJBT-FM. Not yet on the air, that station had until August 1, 2012 to launch, or face the cancellation of the license.[3]

In 2009, CFAO-FM began on-air testing.[4] It is uncertain when the station officially launched.

As of June 25, 2010, CFAO-FM has been shut down due to economic troubles, which led to the station's eviction from its rented studios; also during these final days of operation, the station was unable to pay wages to its staffers.[5][6]

In 2013, Rogers sought renewal of CFAO-FM's license;[7] however, on December 19, 2014, the CRTC denied the station's renewal, citing many violations, including remaining dark since 2011, and failing to meet numerous target dates to resume broadcasting - the most recent being April 1, 2014. An intervention report from My Broadcasting Corporation, owner of competing station CIMA-FM, cited that CFAO was only on the air for 11 months at most.[8]
