WYUL (94.7 FM, "94-7 Hits FM") is a Rhythmic Contemporary music formatted radio station licensed in Chateaugay, New York.

Though the station serves nearby communities in CKOI-FM; all of which are Montreal stations.

The station was originally a rebroadcast station on top 40 WYSX Ogdensburg, New York until 2002, when the station segued to its own branding and broadcasting. WYUL's sister stations are WVNV 96.5 and WICY, both licensed in Malone. In addition, WYUL increased its effective radiated power to 50,000 watts. WYUL became Montreal's first English-language contemporary hit radio station since 1991, when CHTX (990 Hits) became CKIS (that station is still in operation as CKGM) and CJFM-FM's flip from contemporary hit radio to adult top 40 at that time.

Ever since CJFM-FM became Virgin Radio in 2009, WYUL adopted CJFM-FM's secondary former slogan, Montreal's #1 Hit Music Station, but used "Channel" instead.
