KHTK Sports (1140 AM) is a radio station located in the Sacramento, California area. Owned and operated by CBS Radio, KHTK broadcasts a sports radio format as "KHTK Sports 1140" as an affiliate of the CBS Sports Radio network.

KHTK broadcasts a 50,000-watt HD Radio signal (the second Sacramento AM station, after KIID, to broadcast in HD), with its signal regularly reaching as far north as Redding and as far south as Monterey. KHTK programming is also simulcast on an HD subchannel of sister station KNCI (105.1-HD3).[1]

Its transmitter is located in Wilton, and its studios are in North Sacramento (just north of the American River).

KHTK serves as flagship station for Sacramento Kings basketball and Sacramento Mountain Lions and UC Davis Aggies football, as well as Sacramento's radio home for Oakland Athletics baseball and Oakland Raiders football and San Jose Sharks hockey.

KHTK emerged after long-time country giant KRAK switched formats in 1994, due to the declining AM music audience. KHTK started out with a talk radio format (as "Hot Talk 1140")[2] until converting to a full-time sports format, which was originally branded as "Sports 1140" before adopting "The Fan" branding in November 2011. On January 1st, 2013, KHTK began to identify itself as "CBS Sports 1140." One of KHTK's initial sports hosts was Pro Football Hall of Famer Jack Youngblood, who co-hosted with 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 divestiture of radio stations outside the top-15 U.S. radio markets.

On July 1, 2013, 6 months after becoming CBS Sports Radio, KHTK announced it will rebranding back to KHTK Sports 1140, and move to an All-Sports Format.
