KCRO (660 AM) is an Omaha, Nebraska area Christian radio station. KCRO's studios are located on Burt Street (near North 120th Street and Dodge Road in West Omaha), while its transmitter is located behind Roncalli Catholic High School near Sorensen Parkway in Northwest Omaha.

KCRO airs national programs such as Focus on the Family, Jay Sekulow Live, Family Life Today, Insight For Living, Turning Point, and Hope for the Heart. It also airs local programs from people such as Dr. Kathy Walk, Gary Hutchins, and Tara Rye. KCRO 660 also airs local gospel music shows run by Minister Jon Lucas. The General Manager of KCRO is Brad Leggett. In July 2018, Hickory Radio agreed to purchased KCRO and its sister station KOTK-AM from Salem Media Group. The station played an important role in radio history: as KOWH, the station was the first top-40 station in the United States, operated by radio pioneer Todd Storz. Before becoming a religious station in September 1979, KOWH also sported a country music format, then R&B.
