KSHL (97.5 FM) is an American radio station licensed to serve Gleneden Beach, Oregon, USA. The station, which began broadcasting in 1992, is owned by Stephanie Linn.


KSHL broadcasts a country music format to Lincoln County, Oregon, and the central Oregon Coast.[1] Syndicated programming includes the Crook & Chase Country Countdown and Rise Up Country with John Ritter.


This station received its original construction permit from the Federal Communications Commission on April 18, 1991.[2] The new station was assigned the KSHL call sign by the FCC on May 31, 1991.[3] KSHL received its license to cover from the FCC on March 2, 1993.[4]

Construction permit[edit]

In March 2008, KSHL applied to the FCC for a construction permit that would allow it to become a Class C3 station, raise its antenna to 300 meters (980 ft) in height above average terrain, decrease its effective radiated power to 2,800 watts, change its broadcast frequency from 97.5 to 97.7 MHz, relocate its transmitter site southeast to 44°00'08"N, 123°06'50"W, and change its community of license to Coburg, Oregon.[5] This move would allow the station to serve the larger Eugene, Oregon, market, and at the same time allowing KNRQ (at 97.9) to relocate to the Portland area.[6] The FCC accepted this application for filing on April 14, 2008, but as of June 12, 2009, the Commission had taken no further action on the application.[5]
