KAUU (105.1 FM) is an American radio station serving Manti, Utah, and surrounding areas. This station is owned by Slc Divestiture Trust I. Its studios are in Downtown Salt Lake City.

KAUU has been granted a U.S. Federal Communications Commission construction permit to change the city of license to American Fork, Utah, move to a new transmitter site, decrease ERP to 15,000 watts and increase HAAT to 1,243 meters.[1] On December 2, 2015, Broadway announced a deal with Community Wireless, who will move KPCW-FM down from 91.9 to 91.7 and take ownership of the 107.9 signal that Broadway is donating to them after they move KUDD's Top 40 format to 105.1, where it will replace KAUU's Country format.[2]

History[edit]

The station signed on the air in December 1978 with the call letters KMXU. On January 9, 2004, the station changed its call sign to KNJQ. On June 7, 2006, the station changed its call sign to KAUU.[3] In December of 2015, the station became licensed to broadcast from Farnsworth Peak in the Oquirrh Mountains west of Salt Lake City, Utah. The station's city of license went out over the air as American Fork. [4] The former transmitter site for the station was east of Hop Creek Ridge in central Utah. At the same time, the booster for 105.1, KAUU-1, signed off and its license was deleted.
