KOGN (1490 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a Regional Mexican format. Licensed to Ogden, Utah, USA, the station serves the Ogden area. The station is owned by Danette Acosta, through licensee Familia Broadcasting, LLC The station was an affiliate of Dial Global's adult standard format. KOGN's signal was also simulcast on nearby KNFL 1470 kHz in Tremonton, Utah. The station was silent for quite some time beginning in 2009. In 2010, the station returned to air with a regional Mexican format. KNFL is no longer simulcasting KOGN, and had its license cancelled by the FCC in 2012.
The station was built by pioneer Utah broadcaster Arch Webb in April 1948 with call sign KVOG – the "Voice of Ogden" and subsequently changed to KJQN on December 1, 1978, and again on June 28, 1993, to KJOE. The radio station was acquired by the Bible Broadcasting Network from US Bankruptcy Court in Salt Lake City, Utah, in 2004. The station went to non-commercial status and the call sign changed on May 16, 1994, to KYFO. KYFO aired primarily religious programming. The station was then sold to AM Radio 1490, Inc in 2005, and changed to the call sign KOGN on May 1, 2006.
On May 29, 2009, The Fifth District Court of Utah in Washington County appointed a receiver to take over KOGN. This was done for US Capital, Incorporated of Boulder, Colorado, an investment group which foreclosed on Legecy Media, the owners of KOGN and several other stations. The receiver sold the station to Familia Broadcasting, LLC of Salt Lake City in a court-approved sale, at a price of $25,000; the purchase was consummated on May 31, 2013.
