KYXY ("KyXy 96.5") is a San Diego, California FM radio station with an adult contemporary music format. Owned by CBS Radio, its studios are in the city's Linda Vista neighborhood and with its transmitter site in La Jolla. Since the 1970s, KYXY had aired a soft adult contemporary format. But in the early 2010s, like many AC stations concerned about attracting younger listeners, KYXY began moving toward a more uptempo format, airing few songs recorded before 2000.

KyXy 96.5 broadcasts in HD Radio. The programming on the HD2 multicast is "The Crossing", which airs the Contemporary Christian Music format.

Special programming[edit]

  • KYXY is known for San Diego's home for Christmas music from shortly before Thanksgiving to Christmas night.
  • In June 2009, the weekend after Michael Jackson's death, the station paid tribute to the singer by playing continuous Michael Jackson/Jackson 5 hits, and again in June 2010.
