KVGS is a commercial radio station located in Meadview, Arizona, broadcasting to the Las Vegas metropolitan area on 107.9 FM. KVGS airs an Alternative Rock format branded as 107.9 THE ALTERNATIVE. Unlike many Alternative stations, 107.9 focuses more on playing more gold titles than current titles (although current titles are not completely phased out).

History

The station is licensed to Meadview, Arizona with its transmitter just outside of Dolan Springs, Arizona. The station has a full power class C transmitter, and a 78 watt booster on The Stratosphere Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada to help fill in the signal in metro Las Vegas. The station has been broadcasting since October 2005 as AREA 108 and in October 2007 re-branded as AREA 107.9. In September 2009 it re-branded again as 107.9 THE ALTERNATIVE.

Before the current format, 107.9 was V-108, launched in 2002 at first as an Rhythmic Top 40 formatted station. Months later, it shifted to an Urban Adult Contemporary format which lasted for three years then started it's journey as an alternative based radio station AREA 108.
