KCAA is licensed to Loma Linda, California. It’s the local news/talk station
and regional affiliate for NBC News, CNBC Business News and NBC Sports
News. This unusual triple affiliation reflects the broad diversity and range of the
station’s format. The station is enjoying its 20th year as a successful, independently
owned “stand alone” AM-FM news-talk station serving the Inland Empire region
of Southern California.
KCAA’s daytime signal on 1050 AM reaches over 5 million people. The
combined reach of the two FMs on 102.3 FM and 106.5 FM provide listeners with
three listening options.
The station’s Internet system reaches 190 countries. The station’s massive
archive dates back to 2004 with over 400 shows in active status. The system
receives over 300,000 hours of downloads each month. The stations primary
website (www.kcaaradio.com) is doubling its reach every six months. It might be
said that “THE SUN NEVER SETS ON KCAA”
KCAA has earned the reputation as the GO-TO radio station for local
programming. The staff produces and distributes more than 50 local and regional talk and music programs each week on subjects ranging from business and entertainment to liberal, conservative and religious talk, to vegan diets, organic farming and the transition to marijuana legalization. KCAA also airs the top syndicated broadcasters of talk radio including Dave Ramsey, Del Walmsley, Don IMUS, Gary Garver, Pastor Greg Young, Thom Hartmann, Stephanie Miller, Joe Messina, Ray Lucia and Heather Wade, plus the classic rock and roll shows produced 50 years ago by the greatest DJ of them all… “Wolfman Jack”.
The station is currently broadcasting on 1050 AM, 106.5 FM and 102.3 FM from its new media center in Redlands, California. Listeners can enjoy KCAA’s excellent line up of programs on all three frequencies. Recently, the station upgraded all broadband connections to fiber optics and added new audio delivery systems to all three transmitters, specifically adding MP4 AAC 128k digital
Comrex Access units which produce perfect FM Radio and near FM quality audio on AM receivers. The station uses refurbished analog Optimod audio processing and Orban’s legendary stereo synthesizers to produce a sound that is second to none. KCAA’s AM and FM signals exhibit more “dial presence” and audio frequency response than competing stations with similar and higher power. Listeners notice the richer and fuller sound of KCAA.
