KZFN (106.1 FM, "ZFun 106") is a radio station based in Moscow, Idaho, in the western United States,. It has an effective radiated power of 63,000 watts and covers the Palouse listening area, centered in Moscow and nearby Pullman, Washington.

ZFun 106 is a Mainstream Top 40/CHR (Contemporary Hit Radio) radio station and plays "Today's Hit Music."

The transmitter and tower, located on Paradise Ridge (just south of Moscow), provides coverage to the north, west, and south. To the east, the broadcast signal is limited by the Bitterroot mountain range.

The "Rude Awakening" morning show is hosted by Steve Shannon from 6-10 am weekdays. Ceci hosts weekday afternoons, 3pm-7pm. Syndicated programs include the Sticky Mix with DJ Sticky Boots on Saturday night, American Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest Sunday mornings at 10, Sunday Night Slow Jams with R Dub Sundays from 8 p.m.-midnight, and Matt Mony's "Kickback On-Air" Fridays 8-midnight. The station's format caters mainly to persons 18–34 years of age, primarily the Washington State University and University of Idaho student populations.

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.

KZFN launched in August 1985 as a ZFun 106 for Moscow-Pullman and Lewiston-Clarkston.[1]

ZFun 106 has presences on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, as well as a mobile app and Alexa skill that enables streaming.
