KHOT-FM (105.9 MHz; 36 kW) in Paradise Valley (repeated on 7 kW on-channel booster KHOT-FM1 Glendale) and KHOV-FM (105.3 MHz; 6 kW) in Wickenburg, both in Arizona, are a pair of Regional Mexican outlets serving the Phoenix area. The simulcasts, both owned by Univision, operate under the moniker "La Nueva 105.9".





KHOT signed on the air in July, 1996 programming a Country Music format known as "Young Buck Country", before the station was on the air, the call letters were KXLL. The call letters were changed shortly after their sign on date to KBUQ to complement their "Young Buck Country" branding.


On October, 10 1997, the format was changed to Urban Adult Contemporary with a call letter change to complement their new branding as "Hot 105.9". Then later moved to a Rhythmic Oldies direction.

In 1999, KHOT was sold to Hispanic Broadcasting Corporation and flipped to its current format. The 105.3 frequency was added in 2001 creating a simulcast.

KHOT's signature program is Piolín Por La Mañana ("Tweety in the Morning"), hosted by Eddie "Piolín" Sotelo, originating from Los Angeles-based sister station KSCA, a popular show among Spanish-speaking Hispanics in Phoenix. Another part of KHOT programing is The PM drive El Show Del Gatillero Del La Tarde.


KHOV-FM originally aired a Country music format with the call letters KRDS. In 1990, KRDS changed formats to Contemporary Christian. KRDS moved from 105.5 (MHz) to 105.3 (MHz) and increased their signal from a class A to class B. On March 21, 1997, the format was changed to Adult Standards with a change of call letters to KMYL to complement their "Music of Your Life" slogan. In 2000, it flipped to Spanish hits. In 2001, the station was acquired by Hispanic Broadcasting Corporation creating a simulcast for co-owned KHOT-FM.


Along with the Airstaff KHOT has two dedicated promotions teams with one serving the Morning Show and the other in the afternoon. They along with a few other stations are out during the week branding their station!
