WJFX (HOT 107.9) is a Top 40 FM radio station located in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The station operates on the FM radio frequency of 107.9 MHz.

They are owned and operated by Adams Radio Group, LLC.

They were an urban contemporary formatted radio station, known as FOXY 107.9 from sign-on until 1998, when they changed their direction to rhythmic contemporary as HOT 107.9 and finally to contemporary hit radio in 2008. In 2012, the station was moved to the Mediabase contemporary hit radio panel.

In March 2014, Adams Radio Group entered an agreement to purchase WJFX and Country 93.3 WBTU from Oasis Radio Group and crosstown Urban CHR 96.3 WNHT, Oldies 1250 WGL and Classic Rock 103.9 WXKE from Summit City Radio. When WXKE moved frequencies to 96.3, Adams pledged to merge WNHT's format into the station, although it has since continued with Top 40. As a result, two former WNHT disc jockeys joined the WJFX on-air staff. The purchase, at a price of $6.4 million, was consummated on June 2, 2014.

In August 2014, Adams Radio Group began an adult urban contemporary format on low-power translator station W245CA, 96.9 FM, known on-air as B96.9. The station technically simulcasts WJFX-HD3, an HD Radio subchannel of WJFX. Former WNHT DJ Big Kess serves as the channel's program director as well as midday DJ.
