Classical FM 103.1


Classical 103.1 FM Ontario - CFMX-FM Classical FM 103.1 or CFMX-FM as evident by its name is a Classical and oldies radio owned by ZoomerMedia, controlled by Moses Znaimer. The Cobourg station was launched somewhere in summers of 1979. CHUC Ltd. in 1967 got the approval for an FM at Cobourg airing on a frequency of 103.1 MHz with and ERP of 117,000 w but it had to be on air by May 1, 1968 which it couldn’t. In Sep 1976 CRTC again approved the station that would air using same frequency and wattage allotted earlier. CBC bidding for the same frequency was denied surprisingly. On Nov 30, 1978 after a long wait and summons by CRTC, CFMX-FM finally singed on air however, not fully operational. The channel was finally operational on May 28, 1979; it had a classical and fine arts format. After dissention from some in CRTC a two year renewal was given to the FM. Due to unsatisfactory promise, lack of performance, technical and financial issues and overall interrupted transmissions the license was canceled by CRTC in Sep 1981.
