KNRY (1240 AM, is an Oldies Format radio station. Licensed to Monterey, California, United States, the station serves the Santa Cruz and Monterey areas. The station is owned by Mount Wilson FM Broadcasters, Inc.,[1] who bought KNRY from IHR Educational Broadcasting in December 2013. The format was changed to jazz in early January, 2014.[2] In May 2014, KNRY dropped the jazz format and began stunting, first with a simulcast of Los Angeles classical station KMZT-FM ("K-Mozart") and then with a loop of 25 alternative rock songs. On June 9, KNRY-FM (K294CA) became Alternative Rock "Alt 106.7." KNRY simulcasted KMZT-FM.

On March 30, 2015 KNRY changed their format from a simulcast of classical-formatted KMZT-FM to adult standards, branded as "K-SURF 1240".[3] The syndication is also heard on KKGO in Los Angeles on their HD 2 sub channel.[4][5]

KNRY is also streamed online via the TuneIn app.[6]
