KGTO (1050 AM, "Touch 1050") is a radio station licensed to serve Tulsa, Oklahoma. The station is owned by Perry Publishing and Broadcasting and licensed to KJMM, Inc. It airs an Urban Adult Contemporary music format.[2] Its studios are located in the Copper Oaks complex in South Tulsa.

The station has been assigned these call letters by the Federal Communications Commission since February 1, 1982,[1] having chosen them to signify "Greater Tulsa's Oldies", a format change. Previous formats included country music and religious broadcasting.[3]

KGTO's transmitter site at 5400 West Edison was depicted in 1988 in UHF (film)[4] as the location of fictional television station "U-62".[5] While a transmitter tower remains at this location, the original building at the site was removed in 2001.
