KMTL (760 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a religious radio format. Licensed to Sherwood, Arkansas, United States, it serves the Little Rock area. The station is currently owned by the estate of George V. Domerese, and licensed to his son, Timothy Domerese, as administrator of the estate.
760 AM is a United States clear-channel frequency, on which WJR in Detroit, Michigan is the dominant Class A station. KMTL must leave the air from sunset to sunrise in order to protect the nighttime skywave signal of WJR.
KMTL was built and signed on in 1984 by the Sherwood Broadcasting Company, owned by the Shields family. In 1988, George V. Domerese bought KMTL. Under Domerese ownership, the station broadcast a gospel format. George V. Domerese died in 2017, leaving ownership of the station to his estate.
Heavy rainfall in 2018 knocked KMTL off the air as of March 1, and instead of returning it to air, the Domerese estate opted to sell. In August, the estate filed to sell KMTL to Radio La Patrona for $100,000. With the sale still pending, in order to retain its license, the station resumed operations under special temporary authority in late February 2019 with 1,000 watts.
