History

CFHK was originally CHLO, an AM station broadcasting on 680 kHz and with studios in St. Thomas. Due to interference from CFTR in Toronto, which also occupied the 680 frequency, CHLO moved to 1570 kHz in the 1970s. CHLO had a Top 40 music during the 1960s into the 70s, and was a Music of Your Life station in the mid-1980s. After a number of years as a country station, CHLO moved to the FM band in 1994, changing its calls to CFHK-FM. CFHK, known on-air as "The Hawk", had a rock format, which later evolved into classic rock. The station continued to operate out of St. Thomas until the late 1990s.

On January 12, 2000, CFHK joined the "Energy Radio" network, while The Hawk moved to co-owned CKDK in Woodstock. The Energy Radio network was unstable and station branding changed frequently. In 2002, the network was pulled. CFHK became local again as "Energy 103", serving only London and surrounding area. In August, 2005, the Energy Radio brand was folded completely and CFHK became Adult CHR station "1031 Fresh FM". The morning program featuring "D, Mindy & Gord" moved from co-owned CFPL-FM (FM96) to launch the new station format.
