KSUN (1400 AM) is a Spanish-language radio station broadcasting out of Phoenix, Arizona and serving the Phoenix metropolitan area. It is locally owned by the Marques brothers and operates a regional Mexican music format under the branding "Radio Fiesta." The station is also the Spanish-language play-by-play home of Arizona Diamondbacks baseball games and Phoenix Suns basketball games.
Through the mid-1980s KSUN was an English-language station under the call letters KONI and later KXIV and it was programmed with a middle of the road (MOR) music format. The station was co-owned by Ira Lavin and actor Dick Van Dyke (a Phoenix resident). Disc jockeys included George Scott, Jack Dey, Jim Hutton, Paul B. Mundt, and Jim Spero (who also served as program director).
The station changed to its current Spanish-language format in 1987.
