CICF-FM is a radio station in Vernon, British Columbia, Canada airing a contemporary hit radio format at 105.7 FM, using the on-air branding as 105.7 Sun FM.

The station began broadcasting on October 23, 1978 on the AM band at 1050 kHz as CKAL. In 1981, CKAL added FM transmitters to rebroadcast the programming of CKAL AM Vernon in Nakusp, New Denver, and Kalso, while another one was added to Armstrong/Enderby on 89.7 MHz in 1986. CKAL became CICF in 1987. The rebroadcasters CICF-FM-2 New Denver and CICF-FM-3 Kalso were granted to change their programming source from CICF Vernon to CKKC in Nelson in 1990, and CICF-FM-1 Nakusp was shut down in 1997 and taken over by CKKC Nelson. The CKAL calls are now used by a television station in Calgary, Alberta.

On November 28, 2001, CICF moved from the AM band to FM band at 105.7 MHz,[1] and became hot adult contemporary station Sun FM. Sun FM was acquired by Astral Media in 2007 along with the former terrestrial broadcasting assets of Standard Radio. By 2010, CICF-FM switched to contemporary hit radio.
