KKNT (960 AM, "960 The Patriot") is a radio station broadcasting a News Talk Information format. Licensed to Phoenix, Arizona, USA, the station serves the Phoenix area. The station is currently owned by Common Ground Broadcasting, Inc and features programming from Salem Communications.[2]

KKNT primarily airs national talk programming from its Salem Radio Network.


The station signed on in 1947 as KOOL. The station changed its call letters to KARZ in 1979, but reverted to KOOL in 1983.[3]

In late 1995, KOOL-AM began simulcasting KOOL-FM, getting rid of "older-leaning oldies".[4]

On October 7, 1996, the call letters changed to KPXQ; on October 14, 1999 to KCTK; and on September 1, 2002 to the current KKNT.[3] The station adopted its current format in 2002; before that, it was the Christian instruction and talk station KPXQ, or "Q96." The KPXQ call sign was moved to 1360AM.
