KIIS (850 AM) was a commercial radio station in Thousand Oaks, California, United States.

The station signed on September 20, 1971[1] as KGOE, which had an adult standards format. In addition, it carried games of the University of Oklahoma's football team as possibly the most distant affiliate of the Sooner Radio Network.

In 1984, it changed call signs to KMDY and adopted a format which included stand-up comedy and comedic albums. This format lasted until 1992, when it joined the all-children's network known as "Radio AAHS" and simulcast KPLS. When Radio AAHS went off the air, the station, which by this time had become KAHS, switched to adult standards as KLYF, then a few months later all-sports, once simulcasting KXTA, "Xtra Sports 1150." About this time it was purchased by Clear Channel Communications.

Later it became general talk station KBET, then KACD, picking up the "World Class Rock" format abandoned by KACD-FM (103.1). (The KBET call letters are now attached to a station in Winchester, Nevada.) The station then became "KIIS-AM" (simulcasting KIIS-FM). In 2003, it simulcast classic country station KTDD in San Bernardino.

In 2004, 850 AM became a simulcast of KIIS-FM again. It went off the air February 17, 2004[2] after the lease on the land of the towers' location ran out and could not be renewed.[3] The towers were then demolished and a housing tract was built on the former tower location. New Inspiration Broadcasting Company, a subsidiary of Salem Communications, bought the station on November 2, 2004[4] with the intent to surrender the license to allow KRLA (870 AM) to increase its power;[3] the KIIS license was canceled on March 4, 2005.[5] The frequency is now silent.
