CFIT-FM is a Canadian radio station that broadcasts an adult top 40 format at 106.1 FM in Airdrie, Alberta and its transmitter 91.5 FM in Cochrane. The station, which officially signed on April 12, 2007 as The Range, is branded as Air 106-1 and is currently owned by Golden West Broadcasting. It played more rock than its rival, CHFM-FM (Lite 95-9), but still played soft rock and pre-1979 titles unlike its CHFM-FM rival. The Range's launch in 2007 marked it the first time Calgary began having two adult contemporary radio stations on FM.
By 2011, regarding the demise of Mix 97.7 at CIGY-FM (which became adult hits CHUP-FM), the station switched formats from rock-leaning adult contemporary to modern adult contemporary, leaving CHFM-FM as Calgary's only adult contemporary station and regarding the continuity of rock music at its playlist. It was also the largest English-language modern adult contemporary radio station in Canada. Like CKNO-FM Edmonton, the station mixed in classic hits, and despite not reporting to Mediabase & Nielsen BDS' Canadian hot AC panels, Calgary is the largest market in Canada having two English hot AC stations, the other being CKCE-FM (Kool 101.5).
