KXOJ-FM (100.9 FM) is a contemporary Christian formatted radio station licensed to Sapulpa, Oklahoma, and serving the greater Tulsa area. It is part of the Stephens Media Group, (no relation to the newspaper owner) and has been on the air since 1977. Its studios are located at the CityPlex Towers in South Tulsa.

KXOJ broadcasts from a tiny (by modern broadcasting standards) 361-foot tower near Sapulpa. Combined with its 5,000-watt ERP, this results in a much weaker signal compared to the other major Tulsa stations. Several inner-ring Tulsa suburbs such as Broken Arrow, Claremore and Okmulgee get only a grade B signal. Despite these signal limitations, it is one of the most popular radio stations in Tulsa, and has also won three Dove Awards as Station of the Year.

KXOJ's on-air lineup includes Kevin Brooks and Heather Miles each morning from 6-10am. Other veteran announcers include Bob Michaels who has been with the station since 1998 and Caryn Cruise, who has been with the station since 2004. Eric Steiner, afternoon host, started with the station in 2008.
