KKCT, known as Hot 97.5, is a Top 40 (CHR) radio station licensed to Bismarck, North Dakota. The station airs the syndicated "Kidd Kraddick in the Morning" show. Hot 97.5 also has several weekend programs such as the "Billy Bush Countdown", "Dawson McAllister Live", and "Open House Party".

Cumulus Media also owns KLXX 1270 (Talk), KBYZ 96.5 (Classic rock), KACL 98.7 (Oldies), and KUSB 103.3 (Country) in the Bismarck-Mandan area. All the studios are at 4303 Memorial Highway in Mandan.


KKCT signed on in 1993 with a country music format as "Kat Kountry", which later became "K-Kountry". KKCT flipped to Top 40 as "Hot 97.5" in 2004, which led to competitor KYYY "Y93" switching to a adult contemporary format.
