KSRZ (104.5 FM) is a radio station broadcasting an Adult Contemporary format. Licensed to Omaha, Nebraska, USA, the station serves the Omaha-Lincoln-Council Bluffs Metropolitan area. The station is owned by E.W. Scripps Company. Most recently, the station has moved to an adult contemporary direction after being a hot adult contemporary station as of 2008, when the competitor station on 102.7 changed to religious programming. This leaves KQKQ as the only hot adult contemporary station in Omaha despite KQKQ classified as modern adult contemporary. Nielsen BDS still reports the station as a hot AC despite now being the only AC station in Omaha, although for Mediabase, this was changed in 2011, when KSRZ was granted a report on the adult contemporary panel.

KSRZ started in 1972 as KOOO, a country music station. In 1979, the station changed their call letters to KESY and flipped to an automated beautiful music format. In 1993, the format changed to smooth jazz and used live DJs once again. The format was short lived and the station flipped to adult contemporary. In 1997, KESY was moved to the 97.7 FM frequency, opening the 104.5 FM frequency, which ushered in KSRZ and the modern adult contemporary format.

KSRZ broadcasts ESPN Deportes Radio on its HD Radio digital audio subchannel.

Journal Communications and The E.W. Scripps Company announced on July 30, 2014 that the two companies would merge to create a new broadcast company under the E.W. Scripps Company name that will own the two companies' broadcast properties, including KSRZ. The transaction is slated to be completed in 2015, pending shareholder and regulatory approvals.
