History

In 1983, the Federal Communications Commission granted an application to Hualapai Broadcasters to build a new radio station on 105.9 MHz in Kingman, Arizona. The station went on air November 1, 1990, as KRCY with an oldies format.[3]

In 2001, Spectrum Scan LLC purchased KRCY from Hualapai for $4 million.[4] A translator was added in Las Vegas before Entravision acquired KRCY the next year for moving in to Las Vegas.[5] It then changed the station's call sign to KQRT before announcing that it would move KRRN and its Spanish-language contemporary hit radio format from 105.1 MHz to 92.7 MHz.[6]

The Fuego brand was rolled out to Las Vegas on March 29, 2021, replacing adult contemporary La Suavecita.[7] Previous formats include adult hits as José, Regional Mexican El Gato ("The Cat"), and Spanish contemporary hit radio as Súper Estrella.[8]
