KBADAM 920 is an NBC Sports Radio affiliate and local sports station licensed to Las Vegas, Nevada and is owned by Lotus Broadcasting. KBAD was formerly known as KORK prior to 1997. Its studios are in the unincorporated community of Spring Valley in Clark County and its transmitter is located northwest of downtown Las Vegas.
During its heyday under the ownership of Donrey Media KORK with an adult contemporary format was among the most popular stations in Las Vegas for the 18+ listenership. Its lineup included well-known disc jockeys, such as Red McIlvaine, Walt Reno and Ron Murphy. The simulcast morning drive newscasts of KORK/KORK-FM in the 1970s were among the highest radio news broadcasts in southern Nevada history. During the latter part of the decade the newsroom was led by news director Bill Buckmaster (now a talk show host at KWFM in Tucson) and included reporters Jackie Glass (now a District Court Judge in Las Vegas) and Steven L. Herman, currently a Voice of America correspondent in Asia. The trio was frequently heard on NBC radio network newscasts.
KORK later became an big band station similar to KJUL. KORK changed its call sign to KBAD in 1997 and began airing sports talk radio. It was known briefly as "K-BAD AM 920".
