The step stones to organize the radio stations

In Las Vegas there is not even a chance to organize the radio station because they are in weak accessing the signals. And so they had only one choice that listens to the Los Angeles’ AM because that was the closet signal which Las Vegas people could catch up. After a few months, people have slowly heard some other strong signals and surprised, because that was much clear than Los Angeles’s signals. That is none other than Las Vegas’ new radio station named KENO-AM which was in Nov 1940 by Maxwell who was an MIT graduate. This was a great achievement by them, so the whole story of organizing this radio station was covered and published in the Las Vegas’ journal in the name of ‘The first hundred people who shaped Southern Nevada’. After the so many transformations and property issues by Maxwell, in 1948 one construction permitted them to start KENO – 103.9 FM which was the first signal of the station. But that was too much extended for a long time; again this KENO got the frequency of 92.3 and so it was turned into KTRI. This was the AOR station which means Audio-Oriented Rock station. There are some most famous hosts such as Steve Summers for the morning session, George Thomas, Rick Diego, Bill Bauman, and Keith Stewart. Again there is a change of KTRI into K-92 that also didn’t stable for a month; it was totally under the control of KENO-FM with the rock roots until this date. It has a sister station named KBAD-AM which is for Spanish Sports format.
