KYMV, "Movin' 100.7", is a Top 40 Mainstream outlet serving the Salt Lake Valley. The Simmons Media outlet broadcasts at 100.7 MHz with an ERP of 88Kw and is currently licensed to Woodruff, Utah. They also use five on-channel boosters in the area to cover the metro.

History

KEGH signed on as KJQN, bringing back call letters historic to the Salt Lake-Ogden-Provo listening area. The format shifted around, starting as an 80s and early 90s alternative station, using the slogan "Utah's Original Alternative." The station tried to extend its reach by being on a translator in the Salt Lake Valley, at 103.1 FM. Originally the station was covering Utah County on a translator at 100.7 FM but FCC regulations caused this to cease. After a time, the station began simulcasting on 105.1 FM KNJQ. The format changed and grew into a more Triple A styled format mirroring KENZ 107.5 FM. The station received a city of license change to Coalville and a new frequency of 103.1. At this time, 100.7 aired a continuous imaging loop telling northern Utah listeners to re-set their presets to 103.1 FM. 100.7 became a simulcast of Simmons Media's country station, KEGA.

KEGH was serving as a simulcast of KEGA/Oakley, Utah, which broadcasted a contemporary country music format. But that all changed on September 7, 2006, when the station moved its signal from Brigham City, Utah to Woodruff, along with an increase of power of 88Kw, thus allowing the station to cover about 80% of the metro.

KEGH call letters moved to 106.9 FM, replacing KRAR; which is now a simulcast of KEGA covering the same area.

At the start, KYMV's format was patterned after KQMV/Seattle, Washington and was one of thirteen stations to adopt the "Movin'" format, alongside KQMV, KMVN-FM/Los Angeles, WMVN/St. Louis and KFRC/San Francisco. However, after 3 years with Rhythmic AC, KYMV switched directions to Top 40/Mainstream on March 2, 2009, but kept the "MOViN" moniker for their new direction, and it will likely be used until the license to use it runs out.
