CKLH-FM is a Canadian radio station, broadcasting at 102.9 FM in Hamilton, Ontario. The station broadcasts an adult contemporary format branded as K-Lite FM.

The station was launched in 1986 by Armadale Communications, the owner of CKOC. The LH in the call sign stood for Les Horton, CKOC's first broadcast engineer.

Armadale sold the stations to London Communications in 1993. London Communications subsequently sold them to Telemedia in 1999, and Telemedia was itself acquired by Standard Broadcasting in 2002. In October 2007, Astral Media acquired Standard Broadcasting's terrestrial radio and television assets, including CKLH.

CKLH begins playing Christmas music beginning in third week of November up until Boxing Day, as the station is usually the first in Canada on most years to go all-Christmas. Sisters CJEZ in Toronto and CHRE-FM in St. Catharines (also with adult contemporary formats using the EZ Rock brand) play the Christmas music a week later. Most recently, CKLH has begun to skew towards a younger-leaning direction, like its EZ Rock sisters owned by Astral.
