Originally known as CFVM when it was on the AM band on 1220 kHz, the station moved to the FM band in April 2003 after 23 years on AM.[1] The new FM signal also replaced CFVM-1, a short-lived relay in nearby Causapscal which was operational from 1997 to 2003 on 1450 kHz;[2] that facility was previously used by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as a relay of what was then CBGA 1250, and is now CBGA-FM 102.1, in Matane.

On August 18, 2011, at 4:00 p.m. EDT, all RockDétente stations, including CFVM-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.
