CFXY-FM is a Canadian radio station in Fredericton, New Brunswick, branded as 105.3 The Fox. The station, which broadcasts an active rock format, can be found at 105.3 on the FM dial. CFXY is owned by Bell Media.

CFXY was launched on July 15, 1983, as CKHJ-FM and operated at 93.1 MHz. In 1992, CKHJ-FM received approval to change frequencies from 93.1 FM to 105.3 FM.[1]

In June 2000, CIHI changed its callsign and switched frequencies with its co-owned country-format station, CKHJ, which was at 105.3 FM.

The station was owned by Radio One Ltd. until 1999, when it was sold to Telemedia Communications. Telemedia sold the stations to Astral Media in 2002, who was in turn acquired by Bell Canada in 2013.

The station's transmitter is at Hamtown Corner, north west of Fredericton.
