CFXN-FM is a Canadian radio station, that airs a classic hits format at 106.3 FM in North Bay, Ontario. The station is branded as Moose FM with the slogan "North Bay's BIGGEST Variety". The station plays a "mix" of current, recent and older hits. You'll hear everything from a top 40 hit from the current year to music from the 2010s, 2000s, 90s 80s and even 70s. It is a "middle of the road" format nicely positioned between the city's Top40 and hard rock FM stations.

The station was licensed on the basis of a proposal to air a country music format similar to that of the co-owned CHMT in Timmins. Instead, North Bay's CFXN broadcast an adult hits format from startup in 2006 until changing to a light AC format in February, 2012, then to a Hot AC in April 2013. The new format of Biggest Variety stands alone as an option for 25-54 year old listeners in the market.

Originally owned by Haliburton Broadcasting Group, the station was licensed by the CRTC in 2005.[1] As of 2012 the station is owned by the Vista Broadcast Group.[2]

The morning show is built around popular market veteran Mike Monaghan. Since Vista took ownership the staffing compliment has grown to nine full time staff, as well as a part-time component.

The station utilizes a heavy influence on modern technology with apps, an active website complete with ads, and very interactive social media interaction with fans.

Other local veterans involved with the station include General Manager Peter Hobbs and Former announcer and current city councillor Mike Anthony in Sales. Anthony also does some on-air and copy writing for the station.
