KLNV (106.5 FM, "La Nueva 106.5") was a Spanish language radio station. It is owned, by Univision Radio License Corporation. Its antenna is located at the same site of KSON and KOGO. On April 1, 2014, Univision Radio made the announcement of a new formatted radio station under the same call letters but under a new slogan "La Onda". The format will target a younger demographic and feature a broader musical program, which will include narco corridos, banda ballads, and other once known as underground regional Mexican music. The change took many competitors by surprise, for the change in the making was made behind closed doors, and even some of the on air radio personalities at La Nueva awakened to the big surprise. The station can now be compared to that of L.A's Que Buena.

History[edit]

For years, this was KKLQ, "Q106," a top 40 hit station. KKLQ was also heard on KOGO, 600 AM, as part of a simulcast, and later on now-Talk formatted KCBQ. Before KKLQ, this was the original KPRI, playing a rock format. Popular San Diego Morning Team Jeff and Jer were once part of KKLQ, but later went to KFMB-FM, KMYI and are now at KYXY.

Q106 was owned by Edens Broadcasting, along with KKBQ (93Q) in Houston, Texas, KOY-FM (Y95) in Phoenix, Arizona, WRBQ (Q105) in Tampa, Florida, and WRVQ (Q94) in Richmond, Virginia. All 5 stations were top 40 stations. Edens also owned WWDE( 2WD ) in Norfolk, Virginia, during this time, but that station was Adult Contemporary.
