KUTI (1460 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a sports format to the Yakima, Washington, United States area. The station is now owned by Townsquare Media. The station reaches all parts of the Yakima Valley area. It airs programming from ESPN Radio. The 1460 frequency was first occupied by KIMA, which started operations on October 19, 1944. When KUTI went on the air on 980, it was owned by Wally Nelskog, with a rock 'n' roll format. Before the switch to 1460, KUTI was formerly KMWX, with a country-western format. 980 kHz is now KTCR.[1]

In 1957, Harrison A. Roddick bought KUTI and played classical music. So few listeners tuned in that the station did not attract enough advertisers to keep going, and Roddick had to sell the station at a loss.
