KSPA is a commercial radio station located in Ontario, California, broadcasting to the Inland Empire area on 1510 AM. KSPA airs a News talk format.

In addition, KSPA is the new flagship station (as of 2008) of the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes of the California League of Minor League Baseball. It is also an affiliate of the San Diego Chargers and USC Trojans football. Until 2008, KSPA was a local affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.


From 2002 until March 2010, KSPA aired an adult standards format, known as The SPA, which from February 1, 2007 until March 15, 2010, was simulcast on sister station KFSD, expanding KSPA's signal into San Diego County. Prior to 2002, KSPA was classic country station KIKA (the call letters played off KIKF, which was a sister contemporary country station at the time). Before that, it was KMSL, which as of 2008 was the only all-sports station ever to broadcast in the Inland Empire market.[1] The morning show was co-hosted by minor league baseball public address announcer David Achord and former National Football League running back Greg Bell. The station was owned by the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes baseball team and its call sign was derived from "muscle," a term associated with the stereotypical strength of athletes. KMSL aired Quakes games as part of its programming, as it does now.

Before that, it was the leading Spanish-language radio station in the area, KNSE (pronounced "quince," Spanish for the number fifteen).
