History[edit]

KGMZ signed on the air on August 27, 1992, as a Top 40 station, only to flip formats to smooth jazz in 1994. That would give way to its current oldies format in 1997. The station is now KKOL-FM and is now called "Kool Gold 107.9."

The station was assigned the KKOL-FM call letters by the Federal Communications Commission on December 26, 2008.[2]
