KENT served the Cedar City - St. George, Utah radio market and rebroadcasts on FM translator station K249DR 97.7 MHz, licensed to Cedar City, Utah.

History[edit]

The station began broadcasting in October 2004, carrying the Adult Standards format of Dial Global Networks and CNN Radio News from Westwood One. The call sign KENT was assigned in May 2004

On May 29, 2009, The Fifth District Court of Utah in Washington County, UT appointed a receiver to take over KENT AM for US Capital, Incorporated of Boulder CO, an investment group which foreclosed on Legecy Media, the owners of KENT and several other stations. The station was sold to M. Kent Frandsen of Logan, UT for $12,000 in a court approved sale. The transaction, through Frandsen's Canyon Media Group, Inc., was consummated on May 31, 2013.
