CJBZ-FM (93.3 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a contemporary hit radio format. Licensed to Lethbridge, Alberta, it serves the Taber/Lethbridge region. The station is currently owned by the Jim Pattison Group; the only station under this owner to have that format.

This station originally began broadcasting in 1974 as CKTA which operated at 1570 AM, until the station moved to its current frequency 93.3 FM in 2000 as classic rocker CHHK.[1] In 2004 it shifted to adult hits and adopted its current branding and callsign and later to contemporary hit radio in 2007. CJBZ-FM is listed by Nielsen BDS on the Canadian top 40 panel, but was added to Mediabase as of March 2011. It is one of six contemporary hit radio stations in Alberta, the other being Calgary's CIBK-FM & CKMP-FM, Edmonton's CHBN-FM & CFMG-FM and Red Deer's CKIK-FM.

They air American Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest on Saturday evenings at 6 PM and on Sunday mornings at 9 AM.
