KUNX (1400 kHz) is a commercial AM radio station licensed to Santa Paula, California and broadcasting to the Ventura County, California area. The station broadcasts in the Spanish language, carrying a regional Mexican music format branded as "Radio Bronco 1400 AM & 102.5 FM". KUNX is owned by Gold Coast Broadcasting LLC. The station is rebroadcast on FM translator station K273CT (102.5 MHz) in Oxnard, California.

History[edit]

The station first signed on 1948 as KSPA. Since then, it has hosted a number of formats including country (as KQIQ), all-news (as KAAP), and Spanish language (as KUNX). It used the KKZZ call letters for a long period as an adult standards station in the 1990s.[1] In recent years, some of its programs were a simulcast of nearby KKZZ.

In February 2013, it switched to the Spanish-language Radio Fórmula, a Mexican news/talk radio network. In March 2017, it added an FM translator station at the 102.5 MHz frequency. In May 2017, KUNX flipped to a regional Mexican music format with the moniker and the brand name "La Super X". On September 1, 2017, the station adopted the "Radio Bronco" branding.
