Deleting from .ssh/known_hosts

One of the sites I support has changed hosting companies. As a result, the ssh
fingerprint has changed in known_hosts, preventing me from using ssh to
connect to it.
The fix, of course, would be to let ssh create a new fingerprint. To do that,
I need to delete the fingerprint for the old host. As the host names aren't
in clear text, I have no idea how to go about this. I'm sure it's easy, but
I've looked in the man page, and it isn't obviously documented.
Can anyone offer a suggestion. I'd rather not just delete the known_hosts file
and let ssh rebuild everything as I move forward, but if I have to, I will.
