KBHP (101.1 FM, "KB101") is an FM radio station licensed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to serve the community of Bemidji, Minnesota, which is located in northern Minnesota. KBHP plays country music and is owned and operated by Omni Broadcasting. It has its own local news department, and gets state-wide news from the Minnesota News Network. The Bemidji studios are located at 502 Beltrami Avenue, downtown Bemidji. It shares a transmitter site with KKZY, near Lake Plantagenet along Highway 9.

KBHP is the local home to the Minnesota Vikings broadcasts, along with its sister station KBUN. A large amount of the broadcasting day is live, from 5:30 am until 10pm each week day.
