KCSN is an FM radio station licensed to Northridge, Los Angeles, California and a service of California State University, Northridge. Broadcasting at 88.5 MHz, KCSN features classical music, AAA and Americana music, and in-house news broadcasts by the CSUN broadcast journalism students. Students produce six minute morning news segments that air at 6:30 and 7:30 and three minute segments at 7 and 8. A nightly half hour news program called the "Evening Update" airs at 6.

The station's schedule currently consists of classical music on weekdays from 6:00am to 6:00pm and various Americana music programs on the weekend. On September 2, 2008, the station's roster of weekday evening music programs was cancelled and replaced by an automated "Adult Acoustic Alternative" format that runs from 6:30pm overnight until 6:00am.

KCSN's studios are located in the University Park Apartments on the CSUN campus. The station can be heard across the San Fernando Valley, the Santa Clarita Valley and via a booster, in the West Los Angeles area.
