WKHT (HOT 104.5) is a Rhythmic Top 40 station based in Knoxville, Tennessee. The Journal Communications outlet broadcasts at 104.5 MHz with an ERP of 2.3 kW.



This station signed on as WQBB-FM, airing the same programming as adult standards WQBB. Later the FM played "Young country" as WQIX.[1]

Prior to its flip to Rhythmic Top 40 in 2003, the station was a Classic Rock outlet. HOT 104.5 has enjoyed success. In less than two years on the air HOT 104.5 forced its competitor WILD 98.7/WYIL to change formats. Currently HOT 104.5's only competitor is sister station Top 40 Mainstream STAR 102.1-WWST.

The playlist of WKHT primarily consists of R&B/hip-hop plus some Rhythmic Pop hits, thus it is considered to be a rhythmic Top 40 station by Billboard as opposed to mainstream R&B due to Knoxville not having a large African-American population. Its target audience is females 18-34.

HOT 104.5 built its success by engaging listeners, executing creative and exciting promotions and staying on top of current events and trends.
