KGHD-LP, VHF analog channel 6, is a low-powered radio/television station licensed to Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. The station is owned by Rafael Cerros Jr. The station carries a Regional Mexican and Reggaeton format known as Fiesta (Lo Mejor De Los Dos Mundos Regional Mexicano Y Reggaeton).[1]

History

KGHD began operations in 2002 as K67HK channel 67 in St. George, Utah. It was built by the Trinity Broadcasting Network and broadcast TBN programs with 1.3 kW ERP.[2]

In early 2010, K67HK was bought by Obidia Porras, of Victorville, California; Porras operates KUHD-LP and other "franken-FMs" that use VHF analog channel 6. Needing to vacate the 700 MHz band, K67HK moved to channel 6. Porras then moved channel 6 from a transmitter site near Interstate 15 and Brigham Road to West Mountain Peak, and in 2010, K67HK became KGHD-LP. KGHD embarked on a piecemeal move down I-15 to Las Vegas, starting with a September 2010 move to a facility near Overton, Nevada. Not long after KGHD went off the air due to a malfunctioning generator; the generator provided the only electrical service to the transmitter,[3] and the only way to fix the problem was to find a new home. KGHD filed in 2011 to move to a site at Apex, on I-15 northeast of Las Vegas. One last move came in 2013, to Black Mountain—the main television and radio transmitter site in Las Vegas—as the Apex site's air conditioner ceased to function properly and jeopardized the transmitter equipment.[4]

KGHD's first radio programming was a grupera format known as "La Primera"; during this time, Humberto Luna hosted the station's morning show, and the station (required as a TV station to broadcast video) aired a 30-minute video loop. After a period of silence beginning in the summer of 2015, KGHD returned in May 2016 as "La Raza" with a similar format.


On May 30, 2020 The Station Changed its Name and programming to Regional Mexican/Reggaeton And name to "Fiesta 87.7FM". Its new owner Rafael Cerros Jr was quoted saying "We are gonna play and do things for the community that the others don't do". Its current Program Director is Rogelio Regalado known on air as EL TORITO. Most of its on air staff also doubles as sales staff.
