At its inception, KUTR was a female talk station, featuring local and national talk programs. Due to low ratings, the station dropped the talk format and became a 24/7 LDS music station, using the "Soft Sunday Sounds" branding of its sister-station, KSFI-FM. In 2008, the station was sold again, to Julie Epperson. It began airing a Christian contemporary format, mixed with talk. KUTR, when owned by Bonneville, acquired HD Radio for the station, however, the station was forced to turn HD off during the night to avoid interference with other stations. Today, KUTR under its new owner, maintains the HD signal, however there have been times when it is not operating.
