CIXX-FM is a Canadian radio station, broadcasting at 106.9 FM in London, Ontario. It is licensed as a community-based campus radio station by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), and airs a Rhythmic Top 40 format featuring hip-hop, R&B and dance hits.

CIXX-FM broadcasts at an effective radiated power of 3 kW from Fanshawe College's "M" building, which effectively covers the City of London and some areas outside the city.

The station is operated and programmed by students in Fanshawe College's School of Contemporary Media. Radio-Broadcasting students work in on-air announcing, talk programming, writing, production, engineering, music, marketing, and management. News stories, full interviews, images, and events, and contests are all placed on the stations website.

Journalism-Broadcast students operate under the title "XFM News" and provide newscasts for the station. These student's work through 3 different 5-week rotations each semester. They are required to either be a Reporter, Newscaster, or Documentary Producer. On the reporting rotation students are required to attend events and conduct one-on-one interviews to help produce two local stories each day. As a Newscaster each student takes turns broadcasting at the top of the hour mixing local, national, and international stories using Newsroom software. As a Documentary Producer most students produce 3, 4-minute radio features each week.
