KGU is a radio station in Honolulu, Hawaii. The station is owned by Salem Communications and currently broadcasts on a frequency of 760 kHz at a power of 10,000 watts. KGU, which is Hawaii's first radio station, today offers a "Business Talk" format.
The station first signed on the air on Friday, May 11, 1922. In April 1935 it was used as a homing beacon by Captain Ed Musick and Fred Noonan during their survey flights of the Pacific in a Pan American World Airways Sikorsky S-42. In 1941, Japanese aviators used the station's signal to lead them to their attack on Pearl Harbor.
On December 24, 2010, KGU began simulcasting on sister station KHUI, after they dropped their Adult Standards format. The station took the callsign KGU-FM to match the AM sister. However, after simulcasting for over a month, KGU flipped to a Business Talk format on February 1, 2011. The station features programming from the Wall Street Radio Network and CNBC.
KGU airs popular business content such as Phil Grande of The Phil's Gang Radio Show and Ray Lucia.
