KCAL, 1410AM, is a radio station based in San Bernardino, California, United States. It is owned by Lazer Broadcasting, which owns a number of small Spanish language outlets throughout Southern California. Its signal covers much of the Riverside/San Bernardino, California, region in a 50-mile square radius.

Although most of its programming is in Spanish as "La Mejor," KCAL does air the games of the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes of the California League (Minor League Baseball) in English. The rest of KCAL's schedule consists of Spanish-language oldies.

The station debuted in 1961 on 960AM before moving to 1410AM and included FM dial 96.7 in the 1970s, had a mostly rock and roll format in the 1960s to the early 1990s, and was the leading radio station in the Inland Empire in the 1970s and 1980s.[citation needed]

On October 28, 2015 KCAL was granted an FCC construction permit to change the community of license to Grand Terrace, decrease day power to 3,000 watts, decrease night power to 2,200 watts and move the transmitter site to a diplex at KKDD.[1]
