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 Bell Media. It is one of three "Bear" rock stations in Canada; the others are CFBR-FM in Edmonton, Alberta, and CKRX-FM in Fort Nelson, British Columbia.

The station originally began broadcasting June 20, 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.
