KCBL is an American sports talk radio station broadcasting on 1340 AM. Established in 1953 (As KMAK - cf. Fresno Bee Radio Log) and licensed to serve Fresno, California, USA, the station is currently owned by Clear Channel Communications.[2] The station switched to the current "KCBL" call sign on December 16, 1996.[1]

The first station to occupy the 1340 dial position in Fresno was KFRE (cf. White's Radio Log, May 1942) which later took over 940 kHz from KTKC, Visalia.

KCBL serves as the local affiliate for Fox Sports Radio and The Jim Rome Show.
