KHLR (106.7 FM, "Heartbeat 106.7") is a radio station broadcasting an urban oldies music format. Licensed to Benton, Arkansas, USA, it serves the Little Rock area. The station is currently owned by Clear Channel Communications (as CC Licenses). The station's studios are located just west of downtown along the south shore of the Arkansas River (David D. Terry Lake), and the transmitter tower is located on Shinall Mountain, near the Chenal Valley neighborhood of Little Rock.

Prior to 31 March 2008, KHKN 106.7 was known as "The Wolf" and had a classic country format. On that date, "The Wolf" moved to 105.1 FM (currently KMJX) and KHKN was retitled "TOM-FM".[1] According to Phil Hunt, regional programming vice-president of Clear Channel Communications, "We're going to call the station Tom FM after Tom Wood and his famous Brown Bagger show."[1]

On August 17, 2009 KHKN swapped formats and call letters with KHLR 94.9 FM, and switched to urban gospel, branded as "Hallelujah FM".

On April 12, 2011, Clear Channel Communications sold the station to Signal Media for two million dollars.[2] Upon completion of the sale, Signal is expected to flip KHLR to a new format come July 2011, with indications that it will flip to a Rhythmic contemporary format.[3]

On July 19, 2011 at 6 pm KHLR changed their format to Rhythmic oldies, branded as "Heartbeat 106.7". Although its slogan is billed as "R&B+Old School," most of its music also features artists from the early days of the Disco/Dance and Rhythmic Pop genres.
