KZHT (97.1 FM) is a Top 40 (CHR) formatted radio station broadcasting to the Salt Lake City, Utah area. It is owned by iHeartMedia as one of six radio stations in this market. The station's studios are located in West Valley City and its transmitter site is located southwest of the city on Farnsworth Peak in the Oquirrh Mountains.
The station's format resembles that of "Kiss FM," although the 97.1 frequency did have the KISN calls and was at one point a Top 40 prior to iHeartMedia (then known as Clear Channel Communications) acquiring the station. KZHT has been a Top 40 (CHR) format since 1997, when it evolved from a unique Rhythmic contemporary direction as "HOT 94.9," where from its debut in 1989 to 1997 it was known for blending cutting-edge Modern/Dance cuts into its Rhythmic Pop/R&B fare. In 2003 Clear Channel moved KZHT from the 94.9 signal to its current one, allowing better coverage in the Salt Lake Valley.
KZHT would move to the 97.1 frequency, displacing KISN, on December 22, 2003.
