WFHT (1390 AM) & W298BU (107.5 FM) is a radio station licensed to Avon Park, Florida. WFHT is owned by Jhonson Napoleon, through licensee WFHT LLC, and operates with 1,000 watts day and 77 watts at night and is known on-air as Kiss 107.5 (after its translator frequency).

WFHT became the first of six stations in Highlands County to broadcast live over the Internet at www.talkwithattitude.com, and the first to video stream live when it broadcasts its debate weeks over the Internet at inFlorida.tv in August and October.

WFHT until January 2015 aired a nationally syndicated talk show lineup that included Rick and Bubba, Neal Boortz, Michael Savage, Mark Levin, and Phil Hendrie Mondays through Fridays, and specialty talk shows on the weekends. WFHT is also an affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays baseball team, the Tampa Bay Lightning hockey team, and NFL and NCAA football games. In 2015, WFHT began broadcasting Florida A&M Rattlers football games via the "Rattler Football Network".

The former talk station also featured local talk show hosts Dale Pflug and Lester Lob.
