KBJA (1640 kHz) is a commercial AM radio station licensed to Sandy, Utah, and serving the Salt Lake City metropolitan area. The station is owned by United Broadcasting Company. KBJA broadcasts a talk radio format. Much of its schedule is paid brokered programming where the host buys time on the station and can sell advertising to support the show. KBJA's programming had once been heard on AM 630 KTKK "K-Talk" until that co-owned station ceased broadcasting and its programming was shifted over to AM 1640.
KBJA first signed on in 2001. It was owned by the United Broadcasting Company, which also owned 630 KTKK. At first, KBJA aired Spanish-language talk programming. Later it added some sports programming from the ESPN Deportes Radio Network.
In April 2017, management decided to shut off AM 630 KTKK and sell off the property where its towers stood. KBJA 1640 dropped its Spanish talk and sports format and began simulcasting the English-language talk format from 630 KTKK. On May 1, 2017, with AM 630 now dark, all programming was heard on 1640 KBJA. United Broadcasting then turned in the license for KTKK 630 to the Federal Communications Commission.
