KHTK is located in the Sacramento, California area and broadcasts at 1140 AM. This Sports/Talk station is the flagship station of the Sacramento Kings and Sacramento Monarchs. KHTK also broadcasts UC Davis football games. KHTK broadcasts at 50,000 watts and can be heard from Redding to Merced. It is the second AM to broadcast HD Radio in the Sacramento area, 1470 AM KIID being the first. The station can also be heard on sister station KNCI, on their HD3 signal.

KHTK has been one of America's top rated sports stations for the past 12 years. "The Rise Guys" show, featuring Whitey Gleason, "The Phantom", former Sacramento Bee columnist Mark Kreidler, producer/show contributor "Little Joe" Pittman, and associate producer Dave "Deuce" Mason airs weekday mornings from 5-9am.

Jim Kozimor returned to KHTK in July 2009 to host "The Jim Kozimor Show" from 12-3, while "Sportsline" with Kings play-by-play man Grant Napear and former USC football standout Mike Lamb airs 3pm-7pm. Kings pre/post-game host and Monarchs play-by-play man, Jason Ross hosts "The Show" from 7-9pm along with pgroducer Sean Cunningham, update anchor John Dickinsion and associate producer Timmy the Mail Man.

Local caller turned host Carmichael Dave airs from 9pm to midnight. Weekends feature host Chris Townsend on Saturday afternoons; "THE MMASH" mixed-martial arts show with Carmichael Dave late Saturday afternoons; John Dickinson on Sunday mornings; and "SportSunday Track Smack" with KTXL Fox 40 weekend sports anchor Mark Demsky leading into live NASCAR coverage.

KHTK emerged after long-time country giant KRAK switched formats in 1994, due to the declining AM music audience. 1140 AM became the sports station in 1994 with the first show featuring NFL Hall of Famer Jack Youngblood and co-host Mike Remy, the station's former Program Director.

On July 31, 2008, the CBS Corporation announced that KHTK and its five sister stations in Sacramento were being put up for sale as part of the planned divesture of radio stations outside the top-15 U.S. radio markets.
