KFLC (1270 AM) is a Spanish language talk radio station broadcasting in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. This station is licensed in Fort Worth, Texas under Univision Radio.

KFLC calls were once used in Dallas at 1330 kHz in 1924 for a temporary station set up at the State Fair of Texas.

The station that became today's KFLC signed on in 1924 at 1180 kHz as KFJZ. KFJZ later moved to 1140, 1200, 1370 (1928) and 1240 (1939) before settling on its permanent home of 1270 in the early 1940s. During the 1960s and 1970s, KFJZ was a leading Top 40 station in Fort Worth. The KFJZ call letters were reassigned to frequency 870 kHz and is now a Spanish Catholic station. In 1980 the station changed format to Music of Your Life (having moved the Top 40 format onto KFJZ-FM 97.1).

Marcos Rodriguez purchased the station in November 1986 and moved the Spanish Format from FM (see KLTY) to the AM dial. AM 1270 has been a Spanish-language station since under various calls, including KESS (from 1986 until 2004, when the current KFLC calls were instituted) and KSBN (briefly changed but never actually used in late 1990-early 1991).

The station is an affiliate of the Dallas Cowboys Spanish Language Radio Network.[1] The station is an affiliate of the Texas Rangers Spanish Language Radio Network. Also the first station to broadcast Dallas Mavericks basketball games in Spanish.
