KXL-FM (101.1 FM) is an American commercial radio station broadcasting a news/talk format and is licensed to Portland, Oregon, USA. The station is currently owned by Alpha Broadcasting and featured programming from Westwood One. The simulcast began on March 15, 2011 after 21 years as active rock station "101 KUFO". 
The station went on the air as KOIN-FM on September 12, 1948 and aired classical music. In 1977 the station changed their call letters to KYTE-FM and aired a top 40 format as "The FM Kite". In 1979 KYTE-FM changed their format to country and then changed the call letters to KLLB (as "Country Club 101"), in September 1979 KLLB changed format to top 40 rock (as "KB-101"), then changed format to oldies (also as "KB-101") a year later. In 1983 the call letters changed to KRCK and aired a rock format. On January 3, 1985 KRCK changed their format to classical (as "Classical 101") and on February 18, 1985 the call letters changed to KYTE-FM. On January 31, 1989, the station changed its call letters to KKCY and aired a contemporary jazz format (branded as "The City").
In August 2009, CBS Radio sold the Portland cluster (including KUFO) to Alpha Broadcasting in an effort to focus more on major market stations. On October 24, 2009, KUFO began stunting with a "mothership refueling" countdown to end at 7 a.m. on October 28th when it re-launched. The actual musical content of KUFO was the same as it was prior to the re-launch; only the personalities changed. On September 16, 2010, the call sign reverted to simply KUFO.
At 8 a.m. on March 15, 2011, KUFO's format was flipped to a simulcast of KXL (750 AM), which broadcasts news and talk shows. On March 22, 2011 the station changed its call sign to KXL-FM and billed itself as "News Radio 101 FM & 750 AM KXL." It now used the on air slogan "FM News 101 KXL". This is the second FM station in Portland's radio history to use the name KXL-FM; it has been used in the past as the callsign by 101.1's sister station 95.5 (now KBFF).
On May 25, 2011 at 4 p.m. KXL-FM ended its simulcast with KXL 750 AM, which flipped to sports as "750 The Game".
