KMED (1440 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a News/Talk format. Licensed to Medford, Oregon, United States, the station serves the Medford-Ashland area. The station is currently owned by Bicoastal Media Licenses Vi, LLC.
KMED is rebroadcast on FM translator K294AS, Ashland, on 106.7 MHz.
The station began in 1922 with call letters KFAY. At that time, it was owned by William Virgin, and it was the station's policy to stay on the air only until all its commercials had been broadcast. Then it was promptly shut down and the staff went out to sell more air time. At one point during the early 1920s, someone broke into the station and stole all its equipment, leaving only a piano bench behind. Virgin died in 1927, and his wife, Blanche, then operated the station until she sold it to Radio Medford in 1950.
KMED also broadcasts on the following translator:
