KZFN (106.1 FM, "Z-Fun 106 ") is a radio station in Moscow, Idaho. It has an effective radiated power of 63,000 watts and covers the Moscow, Idaho and Pullman, Washington listening area.

Z-Fun 106 is a Mainstream Top 40/CHR (Contemporary Hit Radio) radio station and plays today's hit music. Z-Fun's main competition (the defunct "Hot 104") lost the ability to compete with Z-Fun and switched formats on April 1, 2004. Z-Fun listenership has since increased as they are now the only hit music radio station in Moscow, Idaho / Pullman.

The transmitter and tower are located on Paradise Ridge, just South of Moscow, ID. This location provides excellent coverage to the North, West, and South. To the East, the broadcast signal is limited due to the Bitterroot mountain range.

The "Rude Awawkening" morning show, is hosted by Steve Shannon from 6am-10am weekdays. Renee is on the air from 10am-3pm, CJ from 3pm-7pm and Brandon Lee hosts the Z-Fun night show from 8pm-Midnight. Syndicated programs include the Sticky Mix with DJ Sticky Boots on Saturday night and American Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest Sunday mornings at 10. The station's format caters primarily to persons 18–34 years of age and the local WSU and U of I college crowd.

Other special programming includes Vandal Tuesday and Wazzu Wednesday, both originating from their respective campuses.

Until early 2008, KZFN was also carried on K237DP-FM 95.3 FM, a 34 watt broadcast translator in the "Tri-cities" of Richland, Pasco, and Kennewick and had picked up a significant audience in that area. Simulcast of the station ended due to the sale of the translator.

The station's only online presence is Facebook and Twitter.
