KHTS: Who We Are
KHTS AM-1220 is Santa Clarita's premier radio station. The Santa Clarita Valley is in northern Los Angeles County (part of LA Metro), covering the communities of Valencia, Newhall, Saugus, Canyon Country, Stevenson Ranch, Castaic and Acton/Agua Dulce. Our signal also travels through the Antelope Valley, through the cities of Palmdale and Lancaster.
Santa Clarita's mountainous geography blocks off most of the Los Angeles radio signals. Since the Santa Clarita Valley also contains the second-largest white collar industrial park in Southern California, the majority of Santa Clarita residents live, work and play in our community.
KHTS AM-1220 super-serves our market by with a mixture of local news, traffic and weather in morning and afternoon drives, along with CNN National News and a mixture of mainstream adult contemporary music, featuring artists such as Taylor Swift, Rob Thomas, Kelly Clarkson and John Mayer. It's the perfect target audience: adults 25-64.
Throughout the day and into the afternoons, KHTS AM-1220 features a mixture of specialty local talk shows on news, families, health, finance and local characters, including Non-Profit Spotlight, Families in Action, Truth Helps, Aging With Power, Don & Gino Real Estate Show, Total Financial Safer Money Hour, Senior Hour, Alive & Well, Santa Clarita Business Hour, Thursday Matinee, The Real Side and Around the Barn.
In addition, KHTS AM-1220 is the local radio outlet for Los Angeles Dodger baseball and Los Angeles Kings hockey and the only place to hear local high school and College of the Canyons football and basketball games.
KHTS AM-1220 broadcasts from its home studios on Soledad Canyon Road at Camp Plenty Road as well as its satellite, the community kiosk at the entrance to the Westfield Valencia Town Center. The kiosk is located in the center of the valley's most heavily-trafficked locations.
