KHAR is a commercial sports radio station in Anchorage, Alaska, broadcasting on 590 AM. The station features programming from CBS Sports Radio network.

History[edit]

On May 1, 2013 KHAR changed their format from adult standards to sports, with programing from CBS Sports Radio.[1] Until the switch, the station was one of very few commercial stations in Alaska which managed to retain its format throughout and beyond the era of broadcasting company consolidation which began in the 1990s; KHAR had programmed an adult standards format, or minor variations thereof, since at least the 1970s.
