History[edit]

On December 14, 1950, radio station KYMA began broadcasting at 1400 kilocycles on the AM dial with 250 watts of power as a Mutual/Don Lee network affiliate.[1] It was later a NBC Radio affiliate for the Imperial Valley until the early 1970s. The station changed its call sign to KVOY in January 1957, then to KIVY in 1972, then to KEZC in May 1984, to KJOK in January 1997, and to KCYK in November 2009.[4]

The KYMA call letters were revived in Yuma as a television station in 1987.
