CFHK-FM, or 1031 Fresh FM, is a radio station owned by Corus Entertainment and transmitting from St. Thomas, Ontariomarker, Canadamarker that transmits at 16.7 kW on a -high transmitter at 103.1 MHz on the FM dial. The station plays an adult top 40 format. Although licensed to St. Thomas, the station's studios and offices are located in nearby Londonmarker, with the other Corus Radio London stations.

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 Woodstockmarker. 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 2004, Energy Radio changed formats to its current adult top 40 format to go up against adult contemporary station CIQM-FM and adult hits station CHST-FM. The flip to hot AC was caused by previous hot AC station CHST-FM flipping to its current Bob FM format in July 2003. In August, 2005, the Energy Radio brand was folded completely and CFHK rebranded as "1031 Fresh FM", due to the fact it could match the current CFHK calls. The morning program featuring "D, Mindy & Gord" moved from co-owned CFPL-FM (FM96) to launch the new station format.
