KABQ (1350 AM, "Progressive Talk 1350") is a radio station in Albuquerque, New Mexico, owned by Clear Channel. The station features a liberal, left-leaning news and talk format that started in August 2004.

KABQ transmits at full power (5000 watts) only during the day, dropping to 500 watts at night, and reception can be problematic outside the immediate Albuquerque area due to more powerful stations broadcasting on identical or nearby frequencies from the U.S. and Mexico.

KABQ started out as full time affiliate of Air America Radio. Today it relies on mostly syndicated progressive hosts including Dial Global's Bill Press, Stephanie Miller, Ed Schultz, and Thom Hartmann. It also features Randi Rhodes and Mike Malloy.
