KAZN (Chinese: AM 1300 中文廣播電台; pinyin: AM 1300 zhōng wén guǎng bō diàn tái) is a 24 hours Mandarin Chinese radio station in Los Angeles area.

Before KAZN, this was an AM simulcast of classical music station KFAC (now urban adult contemporary outlet KHHT).

In the early 1990s, it was a multi-language radio station, Chinese programs were only broadcast at night time, Mandarin and Cantonese. In 1993, as a result of an ownership change, Tang Ron-shu, a Taiwanese insurance saleswoman who leased out most of the programs, was forced to leave. Ever since then, it has been broadcasting Chinese programs non-stop.

Until the mid-1990s, when the station owners switched frequencies, KAZN was on 1330 AM, while KWKW was on 1300 AM.

In 1998, it became a part of the Multicultural Broadcasting and began to broadcast simultaneously on the Internet. It is also broadcasting on KAHZ AM 1600 simultaneously.

Throughout its history, it has interviewed many famous Chinese from mainland China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.[1]
