KJR (950 AM) is an all-sports radio station owned by iHeartMedia and located in Seattle, Washington. It was Seattle's only all-sports talk radio station until 710 KIRO affiliated itself with ESPN. KJR is now the Puget Sound region's home of Fox Sports Radio and NBC Sports Radio, and the station, mainly during Seahawks season, uses the slogan "Home of the 12th Man". KJR's transmitter site is on Vashon Island, and operates from its studios in Seattle's Belltown neighborhood northwest of downtown.

KJR is one of the oldest radio stations in the United States. Its first license was issued in March 1922, however, it traces its lineage to broadcasts made by a predecessor station operating under an experimental license beginning in 1920.

On March 3, 2021, the National Hockey League expansion team, the Seattle Kraken, announced a multi-year broadcast agreement with iHeart; as part of the deal, KJR will be the broadcast home of the team, with some games simulcast on KJAQ. The deal will also include a promotional partnership with the entire iHeart Seattle cluster and the 80+ concerts and events to be held annually at Climate Pledge Arena.[1]
