KVLA-FM (90.3 MHz) is a public radio station owned by Southern California Public Radio and American Public Media Group. Licensed to Coachella, California, it serves Palm Springs, the Coachella Valley, and surrounding areas.
KVLA-FM generally simulcasts 89.3 FM KPCC, based in Pasadena, California. It carries such NPR shows as All Things Considered, Morning Edition and Fresh Air, along with news and features from KPCC's news department.
The call sign was changed to KBXO on February 18, 2003, as its owner readied it to become a fully licensed radio station. In 2004, the station was bought by the Family Worship Center of Baton Rouge, Louisiana for a Christian radio format.
The station was sold to the Creative Educational Media Corp. in June, 2008.
On August 22, 2008, the Christian format was dropped and the station started acting as a satellite for KPCC. The call sign was changed to KPCV with the change in format. The call sign was changed again on October 14, 2011, to the current KVLA-FM.
