KBEE, branded as B98.7, is a radio station in Salt Lake City, Utah which broadcasts at 98.7 MHz. It began in 1995 after Citadel Broadcasting purchased KVRI, an adult contemporary station. The station took the calls as KBEE although the music format virtually remained the same. The station's music focus has varied slightly over the past decade, heading more alternative-rock sounding. However, in 2002, the station returned to its roots as an AC (Adult Contemporary) station as "the all-new B98.7." The station shares the radio rights to the Utah Jazz (National Basketball Association) with sister station KFNZ.[1][2] The station is also broadcast on HD radio.[3]
