KRLV (1340 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a sports talk format. It is licensed to Las Vegas, Nevada, United States, and serves the Las Vegas area. Owned by Lotus Broadcasting, its studios are in the unincorporated community of Spring Valley in Clark County and its transmitter is in Las Vegas proper on the west side.
The station went on the air as KMTW on January 1, 1988. On August 9, 1995, the station changed its call sign to KRLV. It has been granted a construction permit to move to a new transmitter site and decrease its day power to 900 watts.
In August 2012, KRLV and KLAV were sold to Lotus Broadcasting. In April 2015, KRLV flipped from its Spanish-language format to the Fox Sports Radio network, joining Lotus's ESPN Radio, NBC Sports Radio, and NBC Sports Radio affiliates.
In April 2017, Lotus announced that it had acquired the radio rights to the Vegas Golden Knights of the National Hockey League, with KRLV to be the flagship station. It was also announced that KLAV's FM translator K255CT would switch to a simulcast of KRLV on 98.9 FM.
