KYNS (1340 AM, "Alt 93.7") is a radio station broadcasting an alternative rock format. Licensed to San Luis Obispo, California, USA, it serves the San Luis Obispo area. The station is currently owned by Martha Fahnoe, through licensee Dimes Media Corporation.
1340AM has been identified with previous call letters, KGLO, sometimes pronounced "K-GLOW" in the 1980s & 90s. After its local owners sold it to Mapleton Communications in 1997, the calls were changed to KYNS, which stands for "your news station." It aired programming provided by the Air America network until Air America's demise in January 2010. The station switched to all news in January 2013.
On November 26, 2013, the station's all-news format was dropped and began stunting Christmas music as "Christmas 93.7"; public radio station KCLU-AM in Santa Barbara is the only station left in the Central Coast continuing with its all-news format. On December 26th, the station introduced a Soft AC format with the branding "B93.7".
On September 26, 2016 KYNS changed their format from soft AC (which moved to KWWV-HD2/K253BR 98.5 FM San Luis Obispo as "B98.5") to alternative rock, branded as "Alt 93.7".
