KEZW (1430 AM, "EZ 1430") is a radio station serving the Denver, Colorado area, and airs a format of soft oldies and adult standards music. It is owned by Entercom Broadcasting. The signal is also available on sister station KQMT HD-2. Local musical programming is presented by disc jockeys and via computer automation. Local news and weather is supplemented with CNN news. Its transmitter is located in Highlands Ranch, near Colorado Boulevard, and is the only Entercom station in Denver not to have its transmitter on Lookout Mountain.

Weekends consist of a lineup of paid infomercials, syndicated weekend programs and automated music. Weekend shows include The Restaurant Show, hosted by Warren Byrne on Saturday mornings; Ask the Garden Pros, heard on Saturday mornings; and Randy's Auto Show, a paid local program hosted by Randy Hancock.

When the station signed on in 1954, it aired a beautiful music format as KOSI, and was paired with KOSI-FM. In 1981, it became KEZW, and adopted an adult standards format, which would last for the next three decades. On December 27, 2015, KEZW adopted the oldies format from sister station KRWZ,[1] which was sold to Kroenke Sports and Entertainment and flipped to sports as KKSE.[2]

Former logo as "Studio 1430"

On September 4, 2018, KEZW changed their format to a hybrid of soft oldies and adult standards, branded as "EZ 1430".[3]
