KXJZ (90.9 FM) or Capital Public Radio is a public radio station in Sacramento, CA. It airs programming from National Public Radio (NPR) and other public radio producers and distributors, as well as locally produced news and public affairs programs. It also offers a continuous 24-hour commercial-free Classical music radio format on its HD2 subcarrier.[1]

KXJZ's signal covers the entire Sacramento metropolitan area including the cities of Auburn, Davis, Roseville, Folsom, Elk Grove, Yuba City and Marysville. It also reaches Fairfield, and Vacaville on the fringes of the San Francisco Bay Area. KXJZ's signal also reaches the northern San Joaquin Valley including the cities of Stockton and Modesto through repeater station KUOP (91.3 FM), Quincy through KQNC (88.1 FM) and the Lake Tahoe and Reno areas through repeater station KKTO (90.5 FM).[2] These stations are collectively known as "Capital Public Radio."

KXJZ's sister station in Sacramento is KXPR (88.9 FM), which broadcasts classical music and a few non-classical programs at the weekend. These stations are both part of Capital Public Radio.

On September 6, 2006, KXJZ and KXPR swapped frequencies in an effort to better serve the listening population.
