KTHI (107.1 FM, "107.1 K-Hits") is a commercial radio station located in Caldwell, Idaho, broadcasting to the Boise, Idaho, area. KTHI airs a classic hits music format.

The call letters KTHI were previously used for a television station in Fargo, North Dakota which is now known as KVLY-TV.

Journal Communications (KTHI's former owner) and the E. W. Scripps Company announced on July 30, 2014 that the two companies would merge to create a new broadcast company under the E.W. Scripps Company name that will own the two companies' broadcast properties, including KTHI. The transaction is slated to be completed in 2015, pending shareholder and regulatory approvals.[1]

In January 2018, Scripps announced that it would sell all of its radio stations.[2] In August 2018, Lotus Communications announced that it would acquire Scripps' Boise & Tucson clusters for $8 million.[3] The sale was completed on December 12.[4]
