CKNL-FM is a Canadian radio station that broadcasts a mainstream rock format at 101.5 FM in Fort St. John, British Columbia. The station is branded as 101.5 The Bear and is owned by Astral Media. It is the third "Bear" rock station in Canada after CFBR-FM in Edmonton, Alberta and CKQB-FM in Ottawa, Ontario (which switched brandings to Virgin Radio in January 2009, as it retained its mainstream rock format), leaving only 2 "Bear" stations under ownership of Astral Media.

The station originally began broadcasting in 1962 at 970 AM, and later moved to 560 AM and finally to the FM dial at 101.5 FM in 2003. [1] When the FM flip was approved, the station was to continue the country music format of the former 560 CKNL. However, likely in response to the recent licensing of CKFU-FM in the same market at that time, when the station flipped to FM the format was switched to a rock station.
