The station, owned by Entravision Communications, it was part of the "Super Estrella" satellite network until 2009.

History[edit]

KVVA-FM was originally "KSTM The Storm" and had a rock format prior to its switch to Spanish Top 40 in 1987.

In 2000, Entravision acquired both KVVA and KMJK and combined the two into a simulcast for its "Radio Romántica" format. In 2005 they would flip to Super Estrella, as part of the Super Estrella Network programmed by Edgar Pineda from its base in Los Angeles' Entravision Radio Division. In September 2008 it was switched to Jose FM, a Spanish Adult Hits format.

Note[edit]

KVVA was also the former callsign for KMVP, an unrelated AM station in Phoenix.[1]
