We operate from three locations, Prescott, Lake Havasu City and Cottonwood. Terry and her husband Sanford started Prescott Valley’s first licensed radio station in 1985 as “Kicks 106” and, after moving the antenna to Glassford Hill that following year, became the first solar-powered FM radio station in North America. Terry’s background in advertising and illustration from Syracuse University served to establish the logos and branding of the stations. In 1992, “Kicks 106” became KPPV 106.7 FM (100.7 Flagstaff) and dramatically increased coverage to 50,000 watts. In 1993, the couple acquired what became KQNA 1130 AM/99.9 Prescott/95.5 Prescott Valley-Cottonwood. Next, 2007 saw the addition of 94.3/103.1 KDDL “Cattle Country,” plus 94.7 JACKFM and 107.1 JUAN in 2014 and 2015 respectively. Starting in 2007, over on the Colorado River, AzHRG through River Rat Radio, LLC began KPKR 95.7 JACK FM and in 2017 created KDMM 103.1 FM “Hot Top 40.” Finally, there’s KUGO 102.5 FM, “Travelradio at the Grand Canyon” the only privately-owned FM station at the National Park.
Its one-of-a-kind travel format is uniquely suited for the over five million annual visitors to the park. What a team!
