CKVX-FM is a Canadian radio station broadcasting at 104.9 FM with a country music format branded as "Country 104.9". Licensed to Kindersley, Saskatchewan, it serves west central Saskatchewan. It first began broadcasting in 2005.[1] The station is currently owned by Golden West Broadcasting.[2]

The CKVX call sign was originally used by Chilliwack, British Columbia radio station CFUN-FM between 2000 and 2004.

In August 2016, CKVX increased its power to 100,000 watts; the new signal covers the majority of west central Saskatchewan, although the station will primarily focus on serving Kindersley and Rosetown.[3] In September 2016, CKVX-FM flipped to country.
