CBCX-FM is a Canadian radio station, which broadcasts Radio-Canada's Ici Musique network at 89.7 FM in Calgary, Alberta.

The station also has a rebroadcast transmitter CBCX-FM-1 in Edmonton at 101.1 MHz.

Both of the station's transmitters were licensed in 2002[1] and launched in early 2003.[2]

On January 20, 2012, it was announced that Radio-Canada have plans to close down the AM transmitter of Edmonton's Première Chaîne outlet, CHFA, and swap frequencies between its nested repeater in Edmonton, CHFA-10-FM (at 101.1 MHz), and the much-stronger CBCX-FM-1 (at 90.1 MHz).[3] This application was approved on June 22, 2012.
