KVOL (1330 AM) is a radio station licensed to Lafayette, Louisiana, United States. It serves the Acadiana area. KVOL was the first radio station in Lafayette when they signed on-air on May 18, 1935.[1] It is owned and operated by Charles Chatelain's Delta Media Corporation.

Programming[edit]

KVOL was an affiliate to several nationally syndicated talk shows including Glenn Beck, Neal Boortz, Michael Savage, Dr. Laura, Rusty Humphries, and Phil Hendrie.[2]

KVOL is also home to several unique music programs including Memory Time, 20th Century Pop and the Soundtrack Matinee.[2]

K249EY[edit]

During the FCC's AM Revitalization project in mid-2016, Delta Media purchased 99.9 W260CK in Slidell from Educational Media Foundation, intending to relocate it to Lafayette as a KVOL repeater at 97.7. The move was completed and the newly-rechristened K249EY signed on, relaying KVOL from its new location September 5, 2016.
