KKLA-FM (99.5 FM) is a Christian talk and teaching radio station serving Los Angeles and owned by Salem Media. During the week from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. the station features Christian call in talk shows. After 7 p.m. and on weekends the station runs ministries and teaching programs such as J. Vernon McGee and Hank Hanegraaff.

The station has been a religious radio format most of its life. Until the 1980s the station was known as KHOF. They were owned by Faith Center. In the 1960s and 1970s the programming consisted of various syndicated ministries as well as programming produced by Gene Scott's faith Center. By 1980 the station was running Gene Scott's sermons 24/7.

In 1984 the station was sold to Salem Media. In 1985 the station switched to a contemporary Christian music format part of the day and Christian teaching the rest of the day. By 1987 though the station was mostly Christian talk and teaching and by 1990 the music was gone.

The station is still owned by Salem today and runs talk part of the day but most of the programming is outside ministries that buy time blocks on KKLA. Salem also owns a contemporary Christian music station on 95.9 KFSH, conservative political talk station KRLA, and 1 other AM station, KXMX, running blocks of paid Christian programming as well.

KKLA claims to be the most listened to Christian talk radio station in the United States.
