WHKR (102.7 FM, "The HitKicker NASH FM 102-7") is a country music radio station serving the Space Coast, but the signal is strong enough to serve parts of the Orlando metropolitan area. It is owned by Cumulus Media. It is one of the 3 country stations that serve the Space Coast, the other two being WIXC AM 1060, whose transmitter is located in Mims, Florida, and WWKA (Transmitter located outside the Space Coast). WHKR's transmitter is located near Cocoa, at 28°21′00″N 80°46′29″W / 28.35000°N 80.77472°W / 28.35000; -80.77472.

Previously known as "WHKR 102.7 The HitKicker", on July 3, 2013, at 3pm, after playing "Parking Lot Party" by Lee Brice, WHKR aired a brief stunt sequence along with the top-of-the-hour station ID, and then joined Cumulus's nationally growing country brand as "Nash FM 102.7 Melbourne". The first song on "Nash" was Randy Houser's How Country Feels, the first song on all new Nash FM stations up to that point.

Station now called "The HitKicker NASH FM 102-7"
