KOMP is a class-C FM radio station operating on 92.3 MHz licensed to Las Vegas, Nevada. KOMP broadcasts an active rock music format. The station was originally KENO-FM until March 8, 1982 playing top 40. The station's first song as KOMP (an AOR station) was The Who's "Long Live Rock". Some of the original personalities on the station known simply as FM92 K-O-M-P included Big Marty and Leslie Blied, Todd Fowler, Dice Martin and Lark Williams. It later became KOMP 92.3 The Rock Of Las Vegas. Other personalities included Scott "So Hot" Jameson, Freddie Woods and JD Pig. The station's request telephone line still uses its old slogan "FM-92".

Now the station's slogan is “KOMP 92.3, The Rock Station”. Personalities include The Rock & Roll Morning Show with Craig Williams, Sweet Al, Andy Kaye, Johnny Salami and Producer Dug; Carlota; and Gooch. KOMP is owned by Lotus Broadcasting, which also owns KBAD 920, KENO 1460, and KXPT 97.1. In 2006, KOMP celebrated its silver anniversary in the album rock format.

The now-deceased lead vocalist for Quiet Riot, Kevin DuBrow, hosted a morning radio show on KOMP in the mid-late 1990s.
