KMKF (101.5 FM) is a radio station licensed to Manhattan, Kansas, and serves the eastern portion of the Salina-Manhattan radio market. The station is currently owned by Manhattan Broadcasting Company.[1]

"K-Rock" airs a format of mainstream rock. Personalities include Cate Carrier and Dan Halen (The Morning Ritual), middays with Mitch Fortner, and afternoons with Mr. Crowley. Andy Crowl also serves as the Program Director for the station. K-Rock also airs "The House of Hair with Dee Snider", and "The Side Show with Nikki Sixx" on Sunday evenings.

KMKF, along with sister station KMAN-AM, is the flagship station of the K-State Sports Network, airing Kansas State University Football and Men's Basketball games. The station also airs the locally-produced "Powercat Gameday" program, as well as the radio shows of both football head coach Bill Snyder and basketball coach Bruce Weber.

KMKF is part of Manhattan Broadcasting Company, which also owns and operates KMAN (News Talk/Sports), KXBZ (Hot Country), and KACZ (Top 40). MBC also provides an ever-increasing digital presence, with video facilities in their recently-expanded offices.

Corey Reeves began his radio career at MBC on-air with K-Rock (as "Cadillac" Corey Dean), working up to co-hosting the morning show until 2012. He then became Operations Manager, getting promoted to General Manager to succeed Rich Wartell in November 2015. Andrea Besthorn is the Sales Manager for the company.
