KHOJ's studios are located on Hampton Avenue in St. Louis, while its transmitter is located north of St. Charles.
KIRL went on the air in 1968, the successor to KADY, which had previously operated on the frequency from 1958 to 1965 (and built the transmitter site used by KHOJ today). It was owned by Contemporary Media, Inc. In 1979, Contemporary Media sold KIRL to the Bronco Broadcasting Company. Bronco relaunched KIRL as a gospel music station for the African American community. Zella Jackson Price and other pioneering announcers were on its air staff.
In 2005, Bronco sold KIRL to the Covenant Network for $730,000. The sale marked the end of KIRL's gospel programming as of April 30 and scattered many of the religious programs it carried. Covenant immediately relaunched the station as KHOJ with its programming.
