KLVP (97.9 FM) is a radio station licensed to serve Aloha, Oregon, USA and the Portland, Oregon radio market. The station is owned, and the broadcast license held, by the Educational Media Foundation.

Station History[edit]

The station signed on in the Eugene, Oregon area as KFMY in 1958. On August 9, 1978, the call sign was changed to KUGN-FM. The call sign was then changed to KKTT on March 16, 1998 which remained until August 15, 2001 when the call sign was changed to KNRQ-FM.

As KNRQ-FM, the station became alternative rock, much like its then sister station WFTK in Cincinnati.

On August 31, 2012 it was announced that Educational Media Foundation would sell 103.7 FM (then KXPC-FM) to Cumulus and Cumulus would move KNRQ from 97.9 FM to the new frequency when the 97.9 frequency moves to Portland, Oregon.[1] On July 28, 2013, Cumulus moved KNRQ to 103.7 at 12 Midnight (PDT) and relocated the KXPC calls to 97.9, where it began testing the signal in the Portland area with music until its transmitter is signed on, as part of its deal to close on its swap with EMF on August 1, 2013.[2]

KXPC-FM's former 103.7 frequency was granted an FCC construction permit to change the city of license to Harrisburg, Oregon and increase the ERP to 100,000 watts.

On September 30, 2013 KXPC returned to the air on 97.9 FM with K-Love contemporary Christian.

On October 29, 2013 KXPC changed their call letters to KLVP, to go with the K-Love contemporary Christian format.
