KJUL (104.7 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Soft adult contemporary format. Licensed to Moapa Valley, Nevada, United States, the station serves most of the Las Vegas area though its transmitter is over 50 miles Northeast of Las Vegas. The station is currently owned by Summit American, Inc.[1]

History[edit]

The station was assigned the call letters KBHQ on July 17, 1998 after being purchased in 1997 from Eight Chiefs Inc., a company owned by Arthur Mobley, Ragen Henry and Syndicated Communications Incorporated. Under Eight Chiefs the call letters were KJUL (the Jewel). The Jewel had long been Las Vegas' heritage Nostalgic station, featuring hits from Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald and Mel Torme.' The coverage area for KJUL-FM 104.7, originating from atop Mt. Potosi, was the largest footprint in the nation. On July 20, 2005, the station changed its call sign to KWLY then again on November 4, 2005 to the current KJUL.[2]

The station was originally licensed in 2001 in Moapa Valley under the call sign KBHQ. In 2005, KBHQ was upgraded to a full class-C1 facility by increase of tower height and 100 kW ERP, with a signal serving the NorthEast Las Vegas market metro area. KBHQ became classic country "Willie" KWLY on July 20, 2005, and then on November 7 adopted the adult-standards format abandoned by Beasley Broadcasting's KCYE, which switched to country music.
