1190AM Frequency History
In its early days, 1190AM began with MOR and Country formats as KAYQ, before ending the 70s with Disco and the KJLA call letters. In the early 80s, KJLA evolved into first Adult Contemporary and then MOR/Standards formats. After the demise of the original KFEZ, 1190AM picked up those call letters in 1992 for what was then a MOR/Easy Listening format. In 1997, new owner Bill Johnson moved the News/Talk format of KNHN to the station. Three years later, KPHN shifted its focus to Business News/Talk, and maintained that format until a 2002 sale to Disney saw the station become a Radio Disney affiliate.
