KKAT (860 AM) is a radio station broadcasting an talk format serving the Salt Lake City area. This is an ABC Radio O&O station through its parent company Cumulus Media.[1]

It was once a classic country radio station with programming from the Jones Radio Network before the change to its current format. The station previously derived a portion of its programming from Scott Shannon's The True Oldies Channel from Citadel Media.[2] On October 1, 2009, the station flipped formats to talk.


In the 1970s, the station was known as KWHO, and carried classical music. The station operated during the day only. On November 15, 1990, the station changed its calls to KCNR. As KCNR, the station carried programming from CNN. On August 11, 1992, the station changed its call sign again to KLZX, simulcasting its classic rock sister FM station formerly at 93.3, where KUBL is today. On January 23, 1995, it changed again to KAPN and on September 20, 1996 back to KCNR. On March 3, 1999, the station changed to KBEE, simulcasting that station's current FM format. Following that brief period, the station was then the Salt Lake City affiliate of Radio Disney, which then moved to 910 where it is today. On July 5, 2004 the station became the KKAT, carrying country music from the Jones Radio Network. Following the switch from country, the station carried the True Oldies Channel.[3][4]
