KFH-FM (98.7) FM is a radio station broadcasting a sports format in Wichita, Kansas. The station is licensed to Clearwater, Kansas and is currently owned by Entercom. The station's studios are located at North Woodlawn and East 21st in Northeast Wichita, while the transmitter is located outside Conway Springs, Kansas.


The KFH-FM call letters were reprised from those of the Wichita station that began broadcasting on September 19, 1948, at 100.3 mHz as a simulcast partner of sister station KFH (AM) (1330 kHz). Around 1967, KFH-FM moved to 97.9 MHz and became known as "Channel 97."[1] Channel 97 broadcast with the "progressive rock" music format. It was also affiliated with ABC's American FM Radio Network. In late 1971, KFH-FM dropped the progressive rock format and switched to a "beautiful music" format and the call letters KBRA. (That station is now KRBB, and owned by iHeartMedia, Inc..)

KFH-FM was issued a construction permit on March 27, 1992, issued as KSQB. The station signed on in 1995 with a Country format as KSPG, "The Kansas Pig", and then a 3-month long Hot AC format as KAYY. On June 2, 2000, 98.7 became the new home of Smooth Jazz KWSJ. The format was moved from its temporary frequency at 92.7 and was originally on 105.3 (Now Hot AC KFBZ-FM). KWSJ's Smooth Jazz format was dropped on March 24, 2002, and flipped to a simulcast with AM sister station KFH.[2]

On May 9, 2011, KFH AM and -FM changed their format to sports talk.

In early 2015, the radio station will move to the Ruffin Building at 9111 East Douglas, formerly the Pizza Hut headquarters.[3]


KFH-FM broadcasts syndicated programs from CBS Sports Radio.
