KEKS 103.1 FM "Kiss 103.1" is a radio station located in Olpe, Kansas, USA. It serves the Emporia, Kansas area and is licensed by MyTown Media, LLC. The station follows a CHR (Contemporary Hit Radio) format and features programming from ABC Radio.

The station first went on air as Kiss 103.1 in 2007, operating as a rhythmic station with DJs. Later in the same year, the station changed its format to an AC (Adult Contemporary) station under the name "Channel 103.1" when it was acquired by Tallgrass Media. However, this decision faced criticism from Emporia State students and others in Lyon County since most stations in the area played country or other formats rather than CHR.

Due to this feedback, the station reverted back to the CHR format under Tallgrass ownership, while retaining the "Kiss 103.1" name. The station plays a mix of new CHR songs along with older songs, leaning towards modern rock or rhythmic genres. This format has gained popularity in Emporia.

Initially, the "2nd version" of the station operated without DJs, but some were later added through voice-tracking. Local jocks were also added to the station in March 2009.
