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

Z-Fun 106 is a Mainstream Top 40/CHR (Contemporary Hit Radio) radio station and plays today's hit music.

The transmitter and tower are located on Paradise Ridge, just south of Moscow, which provides excellent 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. Jeffrey Miles is on 10am-3pm, Mandy Grant from 3pm-7pm and Kennedy hosts the Z-Fun night show from 8pm-Midnight. Syndicated programs include the Sticky Mix with DJ Sticky Boots on Saturday night, American Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest Sunday mornings at 10, and Sunday Night Slow Jams with R Dub Sundays from 8 p.m.-midnight. Matt O'Day, Kennedy, and Blake handle the weekends. The station's format caters mainly to persons 18–34 years of age, primarily the Washington State University and University of Idaho student populations.

Other special programming includes Vandal Tuesday with Mandy Grand and Wazzu Wednesday with Matt O'Day, 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.

KZFN was launched 34 years ago in August 1985 as a rock station for Moscow-Pullman and Lewiston-Clarkston.[1]

Unlike other CHR format radio stations, or most radio stations in general, Z-Fun 106 does not offer online streaming, a mobile app, or any internet presence other than Facebook and Twitter profiles.
