Former callsigns KZZI (1981-1990)
Owner United Security Financial, Inc.

KLLB (1510 AM) is an American radio station broadcasting a Christian Gospel format. It is licensed to West Jordan, Utah the station serves the Salt Lake City area. The station is currently owned by United Security Financial, Inc.[1]


The station signs off air every night, usually at or around local sunset. Other stations such as KGA from Spokane, Washington can be heard in its place. (Because KGA is a Class A station, KLLB must sign off at night to protect KGA's skywave service area from interference.[2]) Since the station's tower was constructed in the 1980s, a housing development has been built around the tower and ultimately a street will replace the land where the tower now stands.[3][4] The station has applied for a construction permit to move its tower farther west near Utah State Route 111.

Currently the station shares the tower with KTKK (630 AM) Sandy, Utah, whose tower was also coincidentally displaced due to a housing development.[3] KTKK has also applied for a construction permit to move its tower north to the North Salt Lake City area.

History

The station was assigned the call letters KZZI on December 7, 1981. The station began broadcasting February 1983. The first format on the station was Spanish Language Variety Music. The station switched to English Language talk radio, and at one point, adopted a Minnesota town (Madison, Minnesota) during a severe drought in the late 1980s. The station's listeners helped with a number of efforts.[5] The original owner sold the station in 1988, and it was sold again in 1990 to the present owner,[6] United Security Financial, which is controlled by children of the late minister of the Faith Temple Church, known as "Mama." The studios are now located in the basement of the church.

On February 15, 1990, the station changed its call sign to the current KLLB and adopted the current gospel format.[7]
