In this paper we present the pulsational spectrum for KIC 5197256. This object is an eclipsing binary system with a period of 6.96 days. We demonstrate that the light curve shows presence of δ Scuti pulsations with a dominant period of 0.1015 day. The object should therefore be included in the ever-growing class of eclipsing binary systems with at least one pulsating component.
