CJAY-FM is an active rock radio station in Calgary, Alberta that broadcasts on 92.1 FM. Owned by Bell Media, CJAY operates repeater transmitters located in Banff, Alberta and Invermere, British Columbia (99.7 FM). Its founder was Ralph Connor, who moved to Calgary from Sudbury, Ontario to start the station.[1]

CJAY-FM was owned by Standard Broadcasting until 2007, when Standard Radio was acquired by Astral from Standard Broadcasting due to Standard's exit from terrestrial broadcasting. As part of Astral's merger with Bell Media on June 27, 2013, CJAY is now owned by Bell Media.

By September 2010, following suit like most Astral rock stations, CJAY-FM changed its logo and slogan, as well as format from mainstream rock to active rock, similar to then-sister station CKQB-FM in Ottawa.

CJAY is currently ranked at #9 in the Calgary market ratings as of Fall 2011.[2]
