KXOL broadcast a Regional Mexican music format to the greater Ogden, Utah, area.[2] The station had previously aired a 1950s/1960s-based oldies music format from its original sign-on until it was acquired by Inca Communications in 2007.[3]

KXOL's signal had been reported in Northern and Southern California, in Flagstaff, Arizona, and as far away as Washington and Oregon.[4]

History

This station received its original construction permit from the Federal Communications Commission on February 6, 1998.[5] The new station was assigned the call letters KBDF by the FCC on March 23, 1998.[1] This callsign would prove short-lived as the station was assigned the KXOL call letters less than one month later on April 17, 1998.[1] KXOL received its license to cover from the FCC on April 27, 2001.[6]

The radio tower for KXOL located near Plain City, Utah.

In December 2002, First National Broadcasting Corporation, reached an agreement to sell this station to Simmons Media Group holding company Simmons-SLC, LS, LLC, as part of a two-station deal for a reported sale price of $925,000.[7] Simmons Media Group had been operating the stations since August 2002 under a local marketing agreement.[8][9] The deal was approved by the FCC on March 18, 2003, and the transaction was consummated on April 1, 2003.[10] At the time of the sale, the station played an oldies music format.[7]

In October 2006, Simmons Media Group, through its Simmons-SLC, LS, LLC, holding company, made a deal to sell KXOL to Inca Communications, Inc. (Nicolas Vicente, president) for reported sale price of $1 million.[11] The deal was approved by the FCC on November 30, 2006, and the transaction was consummated on April 30, 2007.[12] At the time of the sale, the station played an oldies music format.[11] Inca Communications operated KXOL under a local marketing agreement for a reported $5,000 per month until the sale was completed.[11]

On August 17, 2015, KXOL's license was deleted by the FCC due to the station having been silent for more than twelve months (since November 26, 2013).[13]
