About KLIV

1590 KLIV is Silicon Valley’s only all-news radio station.

Unlike San Francisco stations KLIV’s focus is on the news, events and people of Silicon Valley. We are a rarity in today’s world of radio: a locally-owned station that serves the needs of it’s community. 

Besides local news coverage 1590 KLIV is known for our frequent and accurate traffic reports covering Silicon Valley roads and freeways. KLIV’s traffic coverage is unique in a number of ways. For example KLIV routinely tells listeners not only the location of a traffic problem but also the time it was reported to us.

1590 KLIV is an affiliate of NBC Radio, which provides up-to-the-minute national and international news.

1590 KLIV airs special programs such as our Tuesday night CEO Show hosted by Silicon Valley Leadership Group President and CEO Carl Guardino. We carry speakers from the San Jose Rotary Club, and the Commonwealth Club.

If you live in or around Silicon Valley we urge you to listen frequently to the only radio station that focuses on the news where you live, work and drive 1590 KLIV.
