KFKA (1310 AM) is a radio station licensed to Greeley, Colorado that serves the Fort Collins-Greeley area. KFKA began broadcasts in June, 1923 as KFKA on 1100 kHz and was Colorado's first radio station. It is the flagship station for the University of Northern Colorado Bears football and basketball radio network. It also carries a full slate of high school football and basketball games.

It moved to 750 kHz then 1200 kHz, both in 1927. It moved to 880 kHz in 1928. As a result of the NARBA agreement it moved to 910 kHz in 1941. It moved to its current frequency in 1948.
