KTNQ (1020 Radio AM) is a radio station licensed to Los Angeles, California with a Spanish News/Talk format. It is owned by Univision. From its original licensing on June 13, 1925 until 1955 it was called KFVD . From August 1, 1955 until 1960 it was called KPOP. From June 29, 1960 until 1976, it was called KGBS. On September 27, 1976 the station's call sign was changed to the current KTNQ, originally billed as "The New Ten Q."

During the late 1970s along with competitor stations such as KHJ (AM) and San Diego-based XETRA-AM ("The Mighty 690"), the station specialized in Top 40 music, and was broadcast in English. The radio station figures prominently in a movie where Don Steele, a disc jockey is doing a live broadcast from a helicopter with the station's call sign following two star-crossed lovers in the Ron Howard film Grand Theft Auto.

In its early years, KFVD broadcasted from offices and towers on the lot of Hal Roach Studios between January 3, 1929 and December 31, 1931.
