History

The station originally signed on in 1979. From November 2001 until November 2004, the station's call letters were KCPX which broadcast as "Channel 105.7, The Cutting Edge of Rock". From November 2004 until November 1, 2007 the station aired an Album Adult Alternative (AAA) format as KXRV with the "105.7 The River, Quality Music from Then and Now" branding. Beginning on November 1, 2007 KXRV changed their format to country, branded "My Country 105.7" which featured voice mail messages from listeners, no on-air jocks and tags after each song noting the title and artist. The call letters were changed to KTMY on January 17, 2008 to reflect the new format. In August 2009, KTMY became known as KNRS, and began carrying a news/talk format. [3]

Programming

The station features a mixture of predominantly conservative local and national talk show hosts, including Bob Lonsberry, Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh. KNRS also carries advice programs such as Dr. Laura Schlessinger, Dave Ramsey and The Mutual Fund Show with Adam Bold. KNRS originates the regionally-syndicated weekend "Travel Show" hosted by Larry Gelwix.

KNRS has a full news department, with live, local news every thirty minutes. In addition, the station is an affiliate of Fox News Radio for national news coverage. In August 2008, KNRS entered into a strategic alliance with KSTU-TV Fox 13 for local news and weather coverage. KNRS airs live traffic reports on weekdays from 5:00AM until 10:00PM and on Saturdays from 10:00AM until 6:00PM. Traffic reports are provided by Clear Channel's Total Traffic Network, based at the Utah Department of Transportation in Salt Lake City.

KNRS' sister stations include KOSY-FM; KZHT; KODJ; KACP; and KJMY.

All KNRS programming is streamed live on the station's website: 1057KNRS.com [1]. In addition, all of the station's local shows (both weekday and weekend) and select national shows are available by way of podcast.
