KOSS (1380 AM, "NewsTalk 1380") is a commercial radio station broadcasting a news/talk format. Licensed to Lancaster, California, United States, it broadcasts from Palmdale and serves the Antelope Valley area. KOSS is owned by High Desert Broadcasting LLC and features programming from ABC Radio, HLN, and Radio America.
In 2000, the station became KWJL (K-Jewel 1380) and featured an adult standards format.
In 2004, KWJL flipped to Spanish oldies as "Joyas 1380" ("joya" is the Spanish word for "jewel").
In September 2007, KWJL and KUTY swapped formats, and KWJL became "NewsTalk 1380". The call sign was changed to KOSS in January 2008. The KOSS call letters had previously belonged to another local station, KVVS (105.5 FM), under a previous format.
