On August 18, 2011, at 4:00 p.m. EDT, all RockDétente stations, including CHRD-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.
From about 2001 to 2003, CHRD was part of Astral's CHR network, Énergie. It would flip to oldies in 2003 as part of Astral's new Boom FM network; this format would last until becoming a RockDétente station in 2009.
