|Branding||96,9 Rouge FM|
|Slogan||La radio en couleur|
|Frequency||96.9 MHz (FM)|
|First air date||July 31, 1987|
Owned and operated by Bell Media, it broadcasts on 96.9 MHz using a directional antenna with an average effective radiated power of 100,000 watts (class C). The station's transmitter is located at Mount Valin.
The station received CRTC approval in 1986. CFIX-FM started operations on July 31, 1987 as a sister station to the now-defunct CJMT 1420 with a beautiful music format. The latter closed on September 30, 1994 when the Télémédia network and the Radiomutuel network merged to form the Radiomédia (now Corus Québec) network.
In 2004, Astral Media revamped the Rock Détente network with a new logo. This resulted in "CFIX Rock-Détente" being renamed to simply "Rock Détente". As such, the station no longer publicly uses its callsign (although the callsign was resurrected on the station ID in 2011 ).
On August 18, 2011, at 4:00 p.m. EDT, all RockDétente stations, including CFIX-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.
