KNRS (105.7 FM) is a commercial radio station licensed to Centerville, Utah, broadcasting to the Salt Lake City, Utah, area. KNRS-FM began airing a news/talk format in early August 2009.[1]

KNRS carries the same call letters and programming heard on Clear Channel sister station 570 AM, where the call letters originated.

The station broadcasts from a tower located on Farnsworth Peak, 18 miles (29 km) southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah.[2]

History

The station originally signed on in 1979 as KCGL at 105.5 FM. In 1992 the station moved to 105.7 FM and operated as KBCK as part of Buck Owen's "Real Country" Network. In 1992 the call signs were changed and it aired an adult album alternative format as KUMT ("105.7 The Mountain"). From November 2001 until November 2004, the station's call letters were KCPX which broadcast as "Channel 105.7, The Cutting Edge of Rock". From November 2004 until November 1, 2007 the station aired an Album Adult Alternative (AAA) format as KXRV with the "105.7 The River, Quality Music from Then and Now" branding. Beginning on November 1, 2007 KXRV changed their format to country, branded "My Country 105.7" which featured voice mail messages from listeners, no on-air jocks and tags after each song noting the title and artist. The call letters were changed to KTMY on January 17, 2008 to reflect the new format. In August 2009, KTMY became known as KNRS, and began carrying a news/talk format.[2]

Programming

The station features a mixture of predominantly conservative local and national talk show hosts, including Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh. KNRS also carries advice programs such as Sean Hannity, Dave Ramsey and The Mutual Fund Show with Adam Bold. KNRS originates the regionally-syndicated weekend "Travel Show" hosted by Larry Gelwix.

KNRS has a full news department, with live, local news every thirty minutes. In addition, the station is an affiliate of Fox News Radio for national news coverage. In August 2008, KNRS entered into a strategic alliance with KSTU-TV Fox 13 for local news and weather coverage. KNRS airs live traffic reports on weekdays from 5:00AM until 10:00PM and on Saturdays from 10:00AM until 6:00PM. Traffic reports are provided by Clear Channel's Total Traffic Network, based at the Utah Department of Transportation in Salt Lake City.

KNRS-FM's sister stations include KAAZ-FM; KZHT; KODJ; KNRS; and KJMY.

All KNRS programming is streamed live on the station's website: 1057KNRS.com podcast.

Spanish format

On January 30, 2009, KTMY switched to a Spanish adult hits format as "La Preciosa 105.7 FM". The format was short lived, as the station flipped to news/talk KNRS-FM in August 2009.
