KJAC/KCUV - 105.5 @ 102.3 Jack FM
NRC Broadcasting's KKHI-FM changed formats on April 14, 2004 to JACK-FM, becoming the first Variety Hits station on terrestrial radio in the continental United States. Two days later it changed its call letters to KJAC.
On August 1, 2004, Michael Radio Group's 870 KJMP (yes, an AM station) began simulcasting JACK-FM. This was a surprising move, since KJMP was a 1,200 watt daytime/300 watt nighttime station in Ft. Collins which didn't cover any territory that KJAC didn't reach.
The Northeast Broadcasting Company acquired KJMP on February 15, 2006. On July 17, 2006, KJMP dropped its simulcast of Jack and become a simulcast of Oldies 104.9 KRRR in Cheyenne (also owned by Northeast.) Besides the notion of Jack FM on the AM dial being strange, KJMP fell entirely within the broadcast radius of KJAC, rendering it pointless except to those with AM-only radios.
On August 31, 2008, NRC Broadcasting's 102.3 KCUV dropped its AAA format and began simulcasting 105.5 Jack FM. This move took place to give a city-grade signal to Denver's metro and the west/southwest part of the market.
