KIXW is based in Victorville, California, USA, broadcasting on 960 AM (also known locally as "Talk 960"; the station was a long-time CBS Radio affiliate for many years). The station is affiliated with Talk Radio Network but also carries The Rush Limbaugh Show and Coast to Coast AM.

Barb Stanton[edit]

Until recently[when?], KIXW had a locally-based talk-show, "The Barb Stanton Show", which first went on-air in late 2003. The show was cancelled in mid-May 2007 after Ms. Stanton made comments on the air regarding what she perceived as the massive influx of Asian-Americans into the Victor Valley. The comments were prompted when she found out that a Victorville-based bank was about to be bought out by Pasadena-based East West Bank (owned by Dominic Ng, a third-generation Asian-American resident of Pasadena). Stanton now broadcasts a show from Loma Linda-based KCAA.
