KFXZ is an AM radio station located in Lafayette, Louisiana, United States. Licensed to Lafayette, the station operates on a frequency of 1520 kHz and serves the Lafayette radio market with a Spanish adult hits format. In order to protect the skywave signals of former class I-B "Clear-channel stations" KOKC in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and WWKB in Buffalo, New York, which also broadcast on 1520 kHz, KFXZ reduces its power to 500 watts at nighttime and sends most of its signal southward while nulling it to the north, east, and west. The station is owned and operated by Charles Chatelain's Delta Media Corporation.
The station was originally assigned the call letters KXKW. In March 1990, the callsign was changed to KINF, then to KACY in July 1990, followed by KDYS in September 1996, and in August 2004 the station was assigned its current callsign KFXZ.
On May 1, 2013, KFXZ changed their format to Spanish adult hits, branded as "Juan AM 1520".
On November 1, 2015 KFXZ changed their format to regional Mexican, branded as "El Sabor".
