KYLI (96.7 FM) is a radio station serving the Moapa Valley, St. George, Utah and Las Vegas areas, but focused on Las Vegas as a rimshot station. Licensed to Bunkerville, Nevada, the Aurora Media, LLC outlet operates at 96.7 MHz with an ERP of 93 kW and broadcasts from a transmitter site near the Arizona border south of Bunkerville. The station also operates a co-channel booster, KYLI-FM1 in Sunrise Manor, Nevada, closer to Las Vegas.

The station, which previously had a Country format with the call letters KHIJ, flipped to a new interactive Dance Top 40 radio format known as Jelli, replacing former co-owned sister station KXLI's former format after it flipped to Jelli's interactive Rock format, in June 2011.[1]

On June 24, 2014, KYLI announced that it has ended its three-year partnership with Jelli. On June 25, the station adopted the Pulse 87 Dance/EDM brand and relaunched as "Pulse 96.7," under the programming guidance of former KVBE consultant and Pulse 87 owner Joel Salkowitz, with former KVBE voice over imager Emma Clarke handling the same duties. The launch of the "Pulse" brings that brand back to radio just five years after its demise at WNYZ-LP/New York City and its failed attempt to expand the brand to other cities. The Pulse 87 brand will continue to be offered online.[2]
