KHOP is an FM radio station serving the Modesto/Stockton area with Top 40 (CHR) format. It broadcasts on FM frequency 95.1 and is under ownership of Cumulus Media. KHOP refers to itself has KHOP @ 95-1 or All The Hits.

A majority of the music played on KHOP falls in line with what can be described as today's hit music, as KHOP's playlist does reflect the Billboard pop charts. KHOP was once referred as the pop music channel but has dropped that branding in favor of "All the hits." Prior to the switch to a pop music format, KHOP had a rock format focusing mostly on hard rock from the 70's and 80's. Before being a rock station, KHOP was an alternative music channel and famously switched in the mid-90's by advertising their own demise prior to the station's format change. This included a live "cable cutting" show although ultimately the station remained on-air shortly after and didn't change formats until weeks later.

The station can be heard from as far south as Madera, just north of Fresno, as north as Galt, just south of Sacramento and as west as Pleasanton[citation needed].
