KKSS (97.3 FM) is a commercial radio station located in Santa Fe, New Mexico, broadcasting to the Santa Fe, and Albuquerque, New Mexico, area. KKSS airs a rhythmic Top 40 music format branded as "Kiss 97.3".


KKSS signed on with the format in 1985, although at times they had detoured to mainstream Top 40 a few times, mostly when they got new competition (most of them short-lived). But that all changed when Univision bought the station in 2002 and flipped it back to its current Rhythmic Top 40 direction after its former owners tried to make it a mainstream Top 40 again.

Today KKSS has managed to do successfully well with its mix of R&B/Hip-Hop and Rhythmic Pop product, despite the competition it is getting from Rhythmic rival KAGM and mainstream Top 40 rivals KKOB-FM and KDLW.

Current KKSS Staff includes:
Mornings: Houseparty - Dana Cortez & Kandee Man

Middays: DJ Lopez
Afternoons: Johnny V.
Nights: MKue & DJ 3 In The Mix
Overnights & Streets: DJ Animal
Web: Big G
