KCZZ (1480 AM) is a Spanish language radio station licensed to Mission, Kansas and serving the Kansas City market. The radio station plays a mix of modern Spanish music and talk, in contrast to the more traditional music of its Kansas City Spanish-language counterpart, 1250 AM.

KCZZ, despite the usual format, airs Sporting Kansas City Major League Soccer games in English.[1] Prior to its current format, the station was, during the mid-1990s (as KCAZ), the home of Radio AAHS, a format that featured children's programming and music. After Radio AAHS discontinued operations in January 1998, Children's Broadcasting Corporation, the station's owner, needed programming for the ten CBC-owned and operated Radio AAHS stations until it could find buyers. In February 1998, KCAZ, along with the other nine CBC stations, became an outlet for "Beat Radio", which broadcast electronic dance music 12 hours a day until late October 1998.
