CFXW-FM is a Canadian radio station that broadcasts an active rock format at 96.7 FM in Whitecourt, Alberta. The station is branded as 96.7 The Rig and is currently owned by Newcap Broadcasting.


The station was originally on the AM dial as CFYR, until it received CRTC approval to move to 96.7 FM in 1996, then launched as CFYR-FM.[1]

In 2005, CFYR received CRTC approval to operate a transmitter at Whitecourt on the frequency 96.7 FM to replace CFYR-FM and launch as a stand-alone station with the callsign CFXW-FM.[2]

On October 7, 2013, Newcap submitted an application to add a new FM transmitter at Fox Creek to rebroadcast CFXW-FM at 98.1 MHz with 610 watts. [3] This rebroadcaster was approved on January 23, 2014. [4]
