KGEM (1140 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a religious talk format. Licensed to Boise, Idaho, United States, the station serves the Boise area. The station is currently owned by SNL Radio, LLC.

Former owners Journal Broadcast Group announced July 22, 2009 [1] that KGEM, along with sister station KCID, were to be sold to Salt & Light Radio for $950,000. The sale closed on September 25, 2009,[2] and as a result the stations were converted to Salt & Light's local Catholic radio format.
