KKZN (760AM) is a news/talk-formatted radio station licensed to Thornton, Colorado, serving the Denver-Boulder area. The station is owned by Clear Channel Communications.

It is now KDSP (Denver SPorts) and billed as "The Voice of Broncos Country".

Progressive talk programming[]

The station carries a full-time progressive talk format. Known as "Boulder's Progressive Talk", the station went on the air in August of 2004 and carries a number of progressive talk show hosts from both Air America Radio and other companies. These hosts include Thom Hartmann, Ed Schultz, and Randi Rhodes. One of the most popular hosts on KKZN is Jay Marvin. Duning the morning show, Marvin covers both national and state level news and politics. The station also broadcasts University of Colorado basketball and football during their seasons.

Besides broadcasting progressive talk shows, KKZN also runs what it calls a "Blue List." This list includes companies that support progressive causes and interests. The station also sponsors progressive events throughout the Colorado Front Range, such as events for the ACLU and other progressive organizations.


Before adopting a progressive-talk format, they were all-sports "760 The Zone," from which the station's call sign is derived.

Progressive Radio on this IHeartMedia (AKA Clear Channel Communications) ended in 2014. After several reformats, it is (as of 09/12/2018) now Orange & Blue Radio -- all Denver Broncos All the Time. It never was a 50KW station. It is 5KW daytime.
