KKMR (106.5 FM) is a radio station licensed to serve Arizona City, Arizona, USA. The station is owned by Univision Communications, Inc., and licensed to Univision Radio License Corporation. It airs a Spanish language Adult Hits music format in conjunction with KOMR (106.3 FM).[2]

The station was assigned the KKMR call letters by the Federal Communications Commission on February 13, 2002.[1]

The station applied for an FCC construction permit in 2000 for a power increase to class C3. It was granted in 2010 after much modification and application tweaking. This was overseen by the Hispanic Broadcasting Corp. Engineering department. These people more or less specialized in upgrades (KESS-FM Dallas, Tx, KAMA-FM Houston, Tx, WADO (AM) New York, areas. The permit expired on January 15, 2013.

History[edit]

KKMR was originally at 106.3 (as KONZ) and was a simulcast of KONC's Classical format and KEDJ's Modern Rock format until 1997 when it switched frequencies and began its ill-fated stints as a Triple-A and an Oldies outlet before returning to simulcasting KEDJ in 1999.

In 2001 Univision (when it was Hispanic Broadcasting Corporation) acquired the station and flipped it to a Spanish-language Adult Contemporary station called "Amor" as a simulcast with KOMR and KQMR. In October 2005, Univision made adjustments to the "Amor" format making it more Oldies-driven, and changed the name to "Recuerdo".
