KMYT (94.5 KMYT Smooth Jazz) is a smooth jazz radio station in Temecula, California, which broadcasts on 94.5 MHz. The station is owned and operated by Clear Channel Communications.

The station is now the only full-time smooth jazz station in the Greater Los Angeles area (although Arbitron puts it in the Riverside-San Bernardino market) because KTWV is now more of an urban adult contemporary/Smooth AC station. It does still compete with a similar format on KIFM in San Diego.

History[edit]

This station began in 1999 as a simulcast of KOGO, the heritage news/talk station in San Diego. Clear Channel wanted a more reliable signal for KOGO in southern Riverside County, which has become a significant exurb of San Diego (and also of Los Angeles, for that matter). Three years later, Clear Channel changed the simulcast from that of KOGO to that of hot adult contemporary station KMYI and the station became KMYT[1]. The format lasted for two years until it was changed to smooth jazz, their current format.
