History[edit]

In 1983, station KHQN1480 carried a Mainstream Rock format. In 1984, the station became the only stations in the United States broadcasting Hare Krishna programming full-time. The Krishna Temple took over the station from the Schofield family, the previous owners. The program had consisted of news, popular and traditional music and a call in show for the college students and speakers as well as Spanish speaking residents from all over Utah County. The Krishna Temple changed it to a mix of devotional & classical music & philosophical talk & drama shows. To help in the building of the Spanish Fork Krishna Temple, Sace Broadcasting, decided to lease the station to a Spanish Broadcaster, then the station changed to a news/talk format in 2006, and In December 2016, KHQN was re-acquired by the Krishna's SACE Broadcasting. Now, once again, it is broadcasting Hare Krishna programming full-time.
