KOMO-FM (97.7 FM) is a radio station simulcasting the all-news radio format of Seattle, Washington's KOMO (1000). Licensed to Oakville, Washington, United States, it effectively serves as a full-power translator station serving the southern portion of the Olympic Peninsula. The station is currently owned by South Sound Broadcasting, but is programmed and managed via a local marketing agreement by KOMO Radio's owner, Sinclair Broadcast Group. In June 2017 the outright sale of the station to Sinclair for $6.75 million was announced; the sale is pending FCC approval.[1] The station's studios and offices are co-located with television partner KOMO-TV within KOMO Plaza (formerly Fisher Plaza) in the Lower Queen Anne section of Seattle, directly across the street from the Space Needle.

Until May 18, 2009, the station's calls were KFMY, and until May 15 of that year, the station played a classic rock format as Eagle 97.7.

KOMO-FM is also carried on the following satellite and broadcast translator stations to improve reception of the station:
