CFLG-FM is a Canadian radio station, which broadcasts at 104.5 FM in Cornwall, Ontario. The station airs an adult top 40 format branded as 1045 Fresh Radio.

The station was launched in 1957 by the city's daily newspaper, the Cornwall Standard Freeholder, with the call sign CKSF-FM. The newspaper also already owned AM sister station CKSF. Two years later, the stations were acquired by Stanley Shankman, the owner of CJSS-TV, and both changed their callsigns to CJSS as well.

Two years later, Shenkman sold his broadcast holdings. The TV station was sold to Ottawa's CJOH-TV, and the radio stations were sold to the local Émard family.

The radio stations were subsequently acquired by Tri Co Broadcasting in 1978, and CFLG adopted its current callsign. CFLG originally aired a beautiful music format which has since been updated to the current AC sound. They are now owned by Corus Entertainment, who acquired CFLG, along with CJSS, in 2001.[1]

The station had been Variety 104.5, but in audio form, identified as Variety 104.

On August 25, 2014, at 11 a.m., CFLG-FM changed its name to 104.5 Fresh FM. The first song on "Fresh" was "Hideaway" by Kiesza.

On February 13, 2015, 104.5 Fresh FM was rebranded as 1045 Fresh Radio to reflect all other Corus Radio owned Fresh FM radio stations.

The station interfers with 104.5 CHOU (AM)-FM’s signal in Montreal, even though it has a power of 15,700 watts its signal can be received in Montreal.
