KABX-FM (97.5 FM, "K97.5") is an adult contemporary formatted radio station in Merced, California. KABX is owned and operated by Mapleton Communications LLC. KABX can be heard in large areas of central California from approximately Modesto, to south of Fresno. It sometimes can be heard as far north as the Eastern portions of the Bay Area.
KABX was previously an automated easy listening station with the call sign KMYT. KMYT was the original FM sister station to KYOS AM 1480. KABX was originally located at the KYOS-AM transmitter site, but was relocated to Shultz Mountain in Cathys Valley, California, in late 1999, and early 2000 to gain better signal coverage. On August 27, 2011, KABX adjusted its format and became mainstream AC "The New K 97.5- Favorites of Yesterday and Today. Under the guidance of AC consultant Gary Berkowitz, the station is using Jam jingles and voice overs from Jim Merkel.
