The station began broadcasting in 1979. In 1985, CFMT became Canada's first TV station to broadcast in stereo. The following year, it was sold to Rogers Communications. In 1993, CFMT installed repeat transmitters in London and Ottawa, on channels 69 and 60, respectively.
In 2002, Rogers launched CJMT in order to increase multicultural programming, and rebranded the stations as OMNI.1 and OMNI.2. CFMT's programming for South Asian and African communities moved to CJMT, while CFMT kept programming targeted to European and Caribbean groups.
