KQMS (1670 AM, "NewsTalk SuperStation") is an American News/Talk radio station based in Redding, California. The station is owned by Mapleton Communications of Monterey, California which also owns its five sister stations in Redding and four stations in Chico, California. KQMS is generally known as a conservative talk radio station, since all of its main radio shows except for Coast To Coast AM and Schopflin and Gibson are considered to be conservative shows.

KQMS first signed on the air as a music station in the 1940s. The station's call letters stood for "Quality Music Station" because of its various music formats. They switched to the fast-growing news/talk format in the late 1980s and has been the longtime home of popular conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh. Several different hosts also have their shows on KQMS including Sean Hannity, Michael Savage and Glenn Beck.

On August 22, 2016 KQMS and its news/talk format moved to 1670 kHz in Redding, swapping frequencies with sports-formatted KNRO, which moved to 1400 kHz in Redding.[1]

KQMS simulcasted all of its programming with sister station KQMS-FM 99.3 until January 15, 2017, when 99.3 dropped the simulcast. The simulcast now airs on 105.7 & 104.9.
