KXOJ-FM is a contemporary Christian radio station licensed to Glenpool, Oklahoma, serving the Tulsa area at 94.1 FM. The station is owned by Stephens Media, through licensee SMG-Tulsa, LLC. Its studios are located at the CityPlex Towers and its transmitter is in Chandler Park in West Tulsa.

Until August 16, 2016, the then-KTSO branded itself as "The Breeze". The call letters signified a previous format, Tulsa's Soft Oldies. Prior to that format, the station was licensed to Okmulgee, Oklahoma, and aired a range of formats, including classical music. On November 22, 2012, KTSO started playing all Christmas music. KRAV was Tulsa's Official Christmas Station. The Best of the 60s, 70s & 80s returned to the airwaves on December 26, 2012.

Before August 16, 2016, KXOJ-FM was located at 100.9. Every morning between 6 and 10am KXOJ-FM's on-air lineup includes Dave Weston and Katie Rindt. Other veteran announcers included Bob Michaels, joined the station in 1998, and Gary Thompson 3pm to 7pm, who began intermittently working there in the early 90's. After many years in morning drive, Heather Miles moved to the 10a to 3p shift in January 2016.

On July 1, 2013, KTSO changed their format to adult contemporary, branded as "94.1 The Breeze".

On August 16, 2016 at midnight, KTSO began stunting with construction noises. At 7:30 AM, KTSO changed its call sign to KXOJ-FM, after 39 years of that call sign being on its sister station at 100.9 FM. At the same time as the switch, 94.1 and 100.9 switched call letters.[1]
