KIPR (92.3 FM, "Power 92 Jams") is a commercial radio station carrying an urban contemporary format located in Little Rock, Arkansas and licensed to Pine Bluff. It is owned by Cumulus Media. The station's studios are located in West Little Rock, and the transmitter tower is located in Jefferson, north of Pine Bluff. Due to the transmitter location emitting 100 kilowatts, the signal covers most of Central Arkansas including places like Brinkley, North Little Rock, Gould, Fordyce and Dumas.
KIPR airs an urban contemporary format, which was launched in 1988. (Its fonts can be traced back to KPWR/Los Angeles due to having KPWR's radio consultant Don Kelly serving as KIPR's programming consultant at the time). It also simulcasts on sister station KPZK at 1250 AM, although the transmitter site for this station is in College Station, Arkansas (just south of Clinton National Airport). As an urban-formatted station, KIPR's main competition comes from fellow Mainstream Urban station KZTS, and Urban AC station KOKY, formerly a sister station.
It should be noted that KIPR's original owner was Buddy Deane, a disc jockey who worked in radio stations in the Little Rock and Memphis markets before achieving fame in Baltimore with a self-titled program that would inspire the 1988 original, Tony-award winning musical and 2007 musical film remake of Hairspray.
