The station launched at 7:20am on Monday following a day of looping Van Halen’s “Right Now”. It debuted with a full airstaff. Miggy Santos, PD of Alpha Media CHR “Energy 95.3” KLLY Bakersfield joins the station as PD/Morning Host. KLLY midday host DJ Jess comes aboard for afternoons, while Nicole Giordano in nights. Santos previously hosted mornings at “Y101” KWYE Fresno, while DJ Jess spent many years at “Q97” KSEQ.
With KJWL’s move to 105.5, it takes on its former “K-Jewel” branding and shifts back to Soft AC.
Classic Hip-Hop “Rewind 105.5” is the loser in these moves as that format comes to an end with the move of KJWL to 105.5.
