KNFL (730 AM) is a radio station in Boise, Idaho broadcasting a sports talk format.[1] The station is currently owned by Impact Radio Group.[2]

KNFL was originally KBSU, a jazz format station. However, in 2011, it was sold to Impact Radio Group for $165,000. The station was previously operated by Boise State University. [3] On July 21, 2011, Impact changed the calls to KINF and adopted a conservative-leaning news-talk format. It simulcasts the first two hours of America's Morning News with KINF-FM, and simulcasts KINF-FM's entire weekend schedule.

On January 1, 2013, KINF split from its simulcast with KINF-FM and changed their format to sports, with programming from ESPN Radio.[4]

On April 30, 2013, KINF began simulcasting on FM translator K260AI 96.5 FM.[5]

On October 1, 2013, KINF changed their call letters to KNFL.
