KJYO

KJYO, known as "KJ 103", is a Top 40 (CHR) radio station serving the Oklahoma City area and is owned by Clear Channel Communications. Its transmitter is located in Oklahoma City.

History

The station began broadcasting by 1964 as KJEM and adopted an adult standards format. Studios were located where the Murrah Building once stood. It changed calls in 1974 to KAFG and ran an automated oldies format. KAFG's transmitter site was at 23rd and N. Classen on Citizen's Tower. In February 1977 it re-launched as a rock station known as "The Zoo" and adopted the call letters KZUE. During this time it was owned by INSILCO Broadcasting which later changed its name to Clear Channel Radio. After losing its audience to the then new KOFM (now Magic 104.1), it became an AC station known as "Z-103" in 1979. The station adopted the handle "K-Joy" (The Joy of Oklahoma) and an easy listening format in 1981 and changed its call letters to KJYO. It has been a top 40 outlet since 1983 but leaned towards the Rhythmic Top 40 format in 1989-1991 when it was known as "Kontinous Jams." In late 2007 KJYO-HD2 was launched with a New Music Format.
