History

The station's current format began on April 24, 1999 at 92.1 FM and was licenced to Tooele, Utah. In February, 2005 the station moved to its current dial position and changed its COL to South Jordan, Utah, allowing them to better cover the Salt Lake Valley. The station was previously broadcasting to most of the valley via a low-power booster in the Oquirrh mountains.

Current personalities include Poetic C., Brian Michel, Kevin Cruise & Booker. Past jammerz are Zac Davis, Romeo on the Radio, Pat Clark after Dark and Jagger.

In an article from The Salt Lake Tribune, the station is cited by music trades and record labels for being influential in breaking songs from artists like Flo Rida, Plies and T-Pain, especially in a radio market like Salt Lake City. According to PD Brian Michel, he says it all due to the station not being owned by major broadcasters, who rather tell them what they should play instead of what the listeners really want to hear: "People in San Antonio aren't telling us what to play," he said. "We have no outside consultants. We interact with [our listeners]."[1]

"The $tation"

In 2008, KUUU became the subject of an upcoming reality television series, called "The $tation." The series will follow KUUU, its airstaff and management, as they look at how the station has managed to succeed in a very conservative metropolitan radio market like Salt Lake City. APD/MD Kevin Cruise and producer TJ Bates ("The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency" and "Bridezillas") are behind this project. According to Bates, "The $tation gives Hip-Hop fans a side of the music industry most have never seen." The show's pilot episode is currently in post-production and has yet to find a outlet or a airdate for the project.[2]
