CKSJ-FM, branded as Coast 101.1, is a radio station broadcasting in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. Approved by the CRTC in 2003, the station began broadcasting on February 12, 2004, and is the most recent radio station to have launched in that city. It is owned by Coast Broadcasting, owned by local businessman Andrew Bell.
While launching as an adult contemporary station, it now defines its format as classic hits, concentrating primarily on older music. As of 2011, the station's classic hits format consists of 1970s to 1990s music.
Specialty programs airing on the station include The '70s with Charlie Tuna, and Cool Jazz on the Coast hosted by Bill Sharpe.
On August 1, 2014 Coast Broadcasting was given permission to add a new FM transmitter near Clarenville, simulcasting CKSJ-FM in areas where reception of the primary signal is difficult. The new Clarenville transmitter went on the air in July 2015. CKSJ-FM-1 broadcasts on 107.5 FM to Clarenville and area.
In July 2016, the CRTC approved a change in ownership for the station. Co-owner Andrew Bell had applied to take over 100% of the company.
