WKIT-FM (100.3 FM) is a classic rock formatted radio station licensed to Brewer, Maine with studios and offices in Bangor, Maine.

WKIT is part of the Zone Corporation, a central Maine broadcasting group owned by authors Tabitha and Stephen King.

WKIT is one of the few radio stations that still has a live local announcer in the studio 24 hours a day, however on the weekends they carry a small amount of syndicated programming. They also stream their programming on the internet via the official station website.

Notable on air personalities include the "Rock and Roll Morning Show" hosts Bobby Russell and Mark "The Shark" Young, midday host Jason "Rock Dog" Roberts, afternoon host Scotty Moore, evening host Dave Isaac, overnight host Rob Greene, and news anchor Paul Allen.

On Stephen King's official website there is an advertisement for WKIT.

In King's novel 11-22-63, Jake saves most of the Dunning family and when he comes back to 2011 he looks up Ellen Dunning (who was 7 in 1958) and calls her, finding she's a "jock for WKIT in Bangor, you know, a disk jockey?".
