CBKA-FM is a Canadian radio station, broadcasting the CBC Radio One network at 105.9 FM in La Ronge, Saskatchewan.

Until 2009, CBKA had a local news bureau serving Northern Saskatchewan, and produced the regional noontime show Keewatin Country, but otherwise aired the same programming as CBK, the Radio One outlet for the more populated southern half of the province. In the CBC's service cutbacks announced in March 2009, the operation in La Ronge was entirely eliminated, making CBKA a full rebroadcaster of CBK.[1] All programming is now fed from CBK's studios in Regina, though the station remains separately licensed.
