History

The license for KCYE was originally applied for in 1981. The FCC granted a construction permit in 1986, and the callsign KJUL was adopted in 1987. KJUL finally took to the air in 1991, playing adult standards music. On October 3, 2005, KJUL dropped the adult-standards format for country music; on October 10, KJUL officially became KCYE. (The old callsign was immediately adopted by a station in St. George, Utah.)

Ironically, just a few months before changing formats to country, KJUL was awarded station of the year honors at the National Association of Broadcasters' Marconi Awards.

The station switched from 104.3 to 102.7 on August 25, 2009. The station switched with sister Top 40 station 102.7 Radio Now, which moved to the previous 104.3 frequency and became 104.3 Now FM, Your Hit Music Channel.
