KPHT (95.5 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Classic Hits format. Licensed to Rocky Ford, Colorado, it serves the Pueblo, Colorado area. The signal can be heard in most parts of Colorado Springs. The station is currently owned by Clear Channel Communications.

History[edit]

KPHT was originally KAVI-FM and was assigned to Rocky Ford as a class A operating on 95.9, but was granted a C1 upgrade by moving frequency to 95.5 in 1989.

In 2004 the station was changed to "Hot 95.5" as a rhythmic adult contemporary format similar to KPLV in Las Vegas in 2004. In 2009 CC flipped to its current format as classic hits when the format was dropped at 107.9.

KPHT aired the "Wake Up With Whoopi" morning show hosted by Whoopi Goldberg.[1]

Signal Coverage[edit]

KPHT's tower is located 60 miles south of Colorado Springs and even being a C1 with ERP of 100 kW the signal is spotty in most of the Springs. KPTT 95.7 FM in Denver also hampers the reason why the tower is more south of Colorado Springs and only covers most of Pueblo.
