KJMY-HD2[edit]

Since March 2010, KJMY's HD2 radio signal has broadcast a classic country format and has been used to feed an analog FM translator station, K256AE (99.1), licensed to Provo. The station was branded as "Classic Country 99.1" and operates using a loophole in FCC translator regulations to broadcast an additional analog signal to the market. On September 15, 2011 KJMY-HD2 changed their format to classic rock, branded as "Rock 99.1".[2] On January 11, 2013 KJMY-HD2 changed their format to alternative rock, branded as "The Alternative Project".[3] On May 21, 2014 KJMY-HD2 changed their format to country, branded as "Country 99.1".[4][5]

History[edit]

The station was assigned the call letters KBZE on 1988-02-22. On 1989-02-14, the station changed its call sign to KLVV. As KLVV, the station carried an adult contemporary format. On 1991-06-17 the station became KUTQ and was known as "Q-99". As KUTQ, the station achieved its highest ratings with the afternoon show "Mick and Allen" which is presently on KBER. On 1996-10-01 the station became KURR, changing formats to classic rock. Struggling for many years, on 2004-11-04 the current callsign KJMY began being used, and the station's format became hot adult contemporary as it is today.[6][7] KJMY became the only hot AC again in Salt Lake City following the reverting of KBEE to adult contemporary in February 2012 (KBEE would later shift back to Adult Top 40 in 2013).
