KRZI (1660 AM, 92.3 FM ESPN Central Texas) is a radio station, paired with an FM relay translator, broadcasting a sports format. Both facilities are licensed to Waco, Texas, United States, and serve the Waco area. KRZI is fully simulcast on sister station 1330 KTON Cameron, extending ESPN Central Texas's coverage area into Temple, Killeen, Belton, and Fort Hood. KRZI was formerly owned by Simmons Media Group[1] which sold its entire Waco station cluster to M&M Broadcasters.[2] KRZI features programming from ESPN Radio and Westwood One.

KRZI and its sister stations were formerly owned by a company named Simmons Media (now Redrock Broadcasting). The transition was officially made in the summer of 2004. While the station airs local programming, roughly 75 percent is ESPN content. The stations have the broadcast rights for the NFL, the Texas Rangers, The Baylor Bears and NCAA Basketball and Football. Simmons, based in Salt Lake City, Utah, owns and operates Simmons Radio in Utah, Western Broadcasting, Simmons Lone Star Media, Simmons Outdoor Media, Simmons Ventures and the most prominent travel-related company in the Western United States, Morris Murdock Travel. KRZI is considered the de facto replacement for 1580 KQRL Waco, which was surrendered by M&M Broadcasters in order to upgrade and move 1590 KLRK Mexia further west in Limestone County, to cover Waco proper with its daytime signal.
