KFTE (105.1 FM, "Classic Rock 105.1") is a commercial radio station in Abbeville, Louisiana, broadcasting to the Lafayette, Louisiana, area. KFTE airs a classic rock music format. In 1994, Schilling Distributing Co., a beer distributor, bought the station from Mid-Acadiana Broadcasting.[1] Currently, it was the last alternative rock station under Townsquare Media ownership since Townsquare Media is withdrawing alternative rock stations from ownership. For example, some Townsquare Media stations dumped the format entirely such as WGRD-FM in Grand Rapids, Michigan. In 2012, KFTE shifted to Mainstream Rock.

On January 19, 2017 KFTE changed their format to classic rock, branded as "Classic Rock 105.1".[2]
