KZER (1250 AM, "Radio Lazer") is a commercial radio station located in Santa Barbara, California. Owned by Lazer Broadcasting, the station airs a regional Mexican music format. KZER is simulcast on 106.5 FM via translator K293CK in Santa Barbara.


The station originally signed on in 1937 as KTMS.

In 1998, KTMS became KEYT, broadcasting as an all-news radio station. It aired news reports from the Associated Press and simulcasted newscasts from KEYT-TV. Facing financial trouble, Smith Broadcasting sold the station in 2003 to Lazer Broadcasting, who changed its call letters to KZER and its format to Regional Mexican.[1]
