WKFS (107.1 FM), better known by its brand name Kiss 107.1, is a radio station in the Cincinnati, Ohio market. It broadcasts a Top 40/CHR format. It is owned by iHeartMedia. The WKFS studios are located in Cincinnati, as is the station transmitter.
Until the early 1990s, the frequency had a variety of low-rated formats including top 40 "Y107", satellite-based top 40 "The Heat", satellite-based active rock "Power Pig", smooth jazz and adult contemporary. The station operated at a lower effective radiated power from an eastside Cincinnati location during this time. It increased its status (and thus its signal range) from a class A to a class B1, moving to the Mt. Adams antenna farm, shortly before the transition to KISS FM.
Currently the station is located in the Kenwood Town Center next door to WEBN.
Brooke and Jubal in the morning started airing on WKFS in December 2016.
At 1 p.m. on June 21, 2019, WKFS-HD2 began airing programming from "Pride Radio" under the slogan of "The Pulse of LGBTQ Cincinnati" to coincide with Cincinnati's Pride Day & parade.
