History[edit]

KSVN began broadcasting as an English-language station in 1947. In the 1960s it was known as "K-7 Radio", also known as "K-730 Radio". It was owned by the same group that owned KSXX "K-630" in Salt Lake City. The two stations were "sister" Top 40 stations before KCPX 1320 became a Top 40 Powerhouse in the mid-1960s. In 1989, KSVN began broadcasting in Spanish. KSXX changed to a talk format station in English in 1965, and later changed call letters (KTKK), although it remains at 630 on the AM Radio band.
