KMJ News Talk Radio, 580 AM, Fresno, CA


KMJ News Talk Radio is a 50,000 Watt AM radio station located in Fresno, California. It is one of the oldest broadcast stations in the country, having been on the air since 1922. It serves Fresno and most of the Central Valley of California and at night can be heard as far north as the San Francisco bay area.

Owned by Cumulus Media (which own another 50,000 Watt AM station in San Francisco, namely KGO) the station broadcasts on 580 KHz AM and recently added a translator station on 105.9 MHz FM. Both stations air the same programming around-the-clock. KMJ is currently an affiliate of the ABC Radio Network which supplies it with regular national news updates as well as the Oakland Raiders Radio Network, which broadcasts live play-by-play for the NFL team.

As you might expect from their name, the station broadcasts mostly talk radio and news. The majority of KMJ’s talk radio shows are produced locally and feature broad coverage of local news stories from the central valley. At night, KMJ airs mostly syndicated talk radio shows including Red Eye and Mark Levin.

The station’s live internet stream is available on the iHeartRadio Network, which can be listened to using a web browser or smartphone app. A separate stream of KMJ’s programming can also be found on TuneIn.Com.

Some of the station’s local programming includes the KMJ Farm Report with Don York, Ray Appleton and Chris Daniel. Being located in the heart of one of the country’s largest agriculture communities you can expect a healthy dose of agriculture news when listening to the station, especially in the morning hours.
