KKFM is a radio station out of Colorado Springs and Pueblo, Colorado. It plays a classic rock format on 98.1 FM and is under ownership of Cumulus Media.

KKFM originally broadcast at 96.5 FM. It switched to 98.1 in 1994, allowing two new stations to sign on: KBIQ (now KIBT) 96.1 in Colorado Springs, and KXPK 96.5 in Denver.

The station features mornings with The Bob & Tom Show, Chuck Squire middays, JP in afternoon drive, and Tron at nights. Weekends including programming from Alice Cooper Saturday Nights, Sammy Hagar and Matt Pinfield on Sunday, and the KKFM New Music Pipeline featuring new songs by classic rock artists on Sunday night.[1]

KKFM is now[when?] the classic rock leader in Colorado Springs, after former competitor KYZX transitioned out of its classic rock format to alternative from 2008 till 2009.
