CBN-FM is a Canadian radio station broadcasting in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador on 106.9 MHz. The station was launched in 1975, just two years before OZ FM. It is part of the CBC's Radio 2 network.

Local programming is currently limited to weather updates, as well as a pre-broadcast of the local Radio One station's Saturday afternoon cultural program, The Performance Hour, on Saturdays at 11:30 a.m. The latter airs primarily to fill time, as some Saturday afternoon programs are timed to air live in both the Atlantic and Eastern time zones. Among Radio 2 stations, only CBN-FM and Halifax's CBH-FM air any long-form local programming of this type.

Two national Radio 2 programs currently normally originate from St. John's: the weekday editions of Radio 2 Morning, as well as the weekend folk/roots program Deep Roots, both hosted by Tom Power.
