CFBR-FM is a Canadian radio station, broadcasting an active rock format at 100.3 on the FM dial in Edmonton, Alberta. The station uses the brand name The Bear.

The station was launched in 1951 by Sunwapta Broadcasting as CFRN-FM, simulcasting the AM programming of CFRN. It launched separate programming in 1964, and adopted the callsign CKXM in 1979. The station was subsequently sold to CAP Communications in 1988, and adopted the callsign CJKE the following year.

The station was then acquired by Standard Broadcasting in 1992, and adopted the current CFBR calls.

On September 28, 2007, the CRTC approved the sale of CFBR and all Standard Radio assets to Astral Media.[2]

CFBR was rated as the third most listened to station in the Edmonton market in the 2008 BBM ratings book.[3]


CFBR was formerly the callsign of an AM station in Brockville, Ontario, known today as CFJR, and was also a former callsign of another AM radio station in Sudbury, which is now known as CHYC.)
