KRXA (540 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a Spanish language religion format. Licensed to Carmel Valley, California, United States, the station serves the Santa Cruz area. It is currently owned by El Sembrador Ministries.[1]

History[edit]

In 1995 after being purchased by Cypress Communications, KIEZ switched from a Spanish language KKLF simulcast to adult standards.[2] From 2005 to 2012, the station was a progressive talk station. When KRXA was sold to El Sembrador, the progressive talk moved to RadioMonterey.com.[3][4]
