KACP (570 AM) is a radio station licensed to Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. The station is currently owned by Clear Channel Communications. The station has obtained a construction permit from the FCC for a power increase to 50,000 watts day and 5,000 watts night. [1]

KACP's sister stations include KOSY-FM; KZHT-FM ("97.1 ZHT"); KNRS; KODJ; and KJMY.


The station signed on in 1938 as KUTA and was then head by Utah broadcasting pioneer Frank Carman. In the 1970s, the station changed its calls to KLUB and was once the flagship station for the Utah Jazz of the National Basketball Association. KLUB gave way to KISN AM, which was Utah's first all-sports radio station and was branded as "Sports Radio 570". Clear Channel Communications purchased the station in 1997. After being sold to Jacor Communications, the station's call letters became KNRS, standing for News Radio Station. The station adopted a hybrid all-news format under the moniker "570 K-News". After the failure of the all-news format, KNRS became known as "Family Values Talk Radio" in 2000.[2][3] KNRS gave way to KACP in September 2009. In January 2009, as KNRS, the station began simulcasting its programming on FM at 94.1 HD-2. KACP will soon switch to KJMY HD-2 and the format currently present there will move to 94.1 HD2.

On August 3rd 2009, The station, as KNRS, planned to cease broadcasting on 570 AM move to 105.7 on the FM dial. While the move to the FM dial did happen, KACP continued airing its original programming.[4]

On September 17, 2009, KACP split off in a more business-oriented direction as "Freedom 570," with a lineup including Cox Radio hosts Neal Boortz and Clark Howard as well as Clear Channel in-house shows Jason Lewis, The Schnitt Show and Handel on the Law.[5]
