CITE-FM

CITE-FM is a French-language Canadian radio station located in Montreal, Quebec.

Owned and operated by Astral Media, it broadcasts on 107.3 MHz with an effective radiated power of 42,900 watts (class C1) using an omnidirectional antenna from the Mount Royal candelabra tower.

The station has an adult contemporary format and is the flagship of the Rock Détente network which operates across Quebec and Eastern Ontario.

It started operations in 1977 as a sister station to CKAC 730 (now owned by Corus Entertainment since early 2005) and identified itself, until 1990, as "Radio-Cité". Unlike most other FM stations in Montreal which were created as a sister station to an existing AM station, it never shared the call sign of its AM sister (i.e. it was never known as "CKAC-FM").

While the station was originally planned to be on 93.5 MHz, then-owner Telemedia was forced by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to use 107.3 MHz instead, as the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation had targeted 93.5 MHz as a reserved frequency and rushed to move CBM-FM from 95.1 to 93.5 MHz in 1976.
