KLCN was an American radio station airing a Classic Hits format. Formally licensed to Blytheville, Arkansas, broadcasting on 910 kHz AM. The station served the areas of Blytheville, Arkansas, Dyersburg, Tennessee, Covington, Tennessee, and Kennett, Missouri for nearly 90 years. In the mid-1930s, among the blues musicians who performed live on the station were Calvin Frazier and James Peck Curtis.[1] The station was owned by Sudbury Services, Inc.[2]

Sudbury surrendered the license for KLCN to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on December 31, 2018, who subsequently cancelled it.[3]
