CKNX-FM is a Canadian radio station, which broadcasts at 101.7 FM in Wingham, Ontario. The station broadcasts a hot adult contemporary format as 101.7 The One. The station was formerly known as FM102 before summer 2006.

The station was launched in 1977 by Blackburn Radio, the owner of the city's existing CKNX 920 AM and former owner of CKNX-TV, which is now owned by Bell Media. Blackburn subsequently launched another FM station in Wingham, CIBU, in 2005.

The station also has a low-power rebroadcast transmitter in Centreville, on 104.9 FM to serve Centreville and Meaford.[1] On August 28, 2008, Blackburn Radio applied to the CRTC to change the Centreville/Meaford frequency from 104.9 to 102.7 MHz and to increase power from 50 to 250 watts which was denied on December 2 later that same year.[2]
