KJUL (104.7 FM) is a radio station broadcasting an Adult Standards/MOR format. Licensed to Moapa Valley, Nevada, USA, the station serves most of the Las Vegas area though its transmitter is over 50 miles Northeast of Las Vegas. The station is currently owned by Summit American, Inc.[1]

History[edit]

The station was assigned the call letters KBHQ on July 17, 1998 after being purchased in 1997 from Eight Chiefs Inc., a company owned by Arthur Mobley, Ragen Henry and Syndicated Communications Incorporated. Under Eight Chiefs the call letters were KJUL (the Jewel). On July 20, 2005, the station changed its call sign to KWLY then again on November 4, 2005 to the current KJUL.[2]

The station was originally licensed in 2001 in Moapa Valley under the call sign KBHQ. In 2005, KBHQ was upgraded to a full class-C1 facility by increase of tower height to 100 kW ERP, with a signal serving the NorthEast Las Vegas market metro area. KBHQ became classic country "Willie" KWLY on July 20, 2005, and then on November 7 adopted the adult-standards format abandoned by Beasley Broadcasting for a country format as KCYE. The KJUL call sign was then acquired by Legacy Communications for use on 790AM. When Legacy Communications instead decided to use KBET to identify its new AM station, it decided to transfer these calls to Summit and KWLY became KJUL.
