The KBYU Radio station began broadcasting in 1946. It was the first collegiate radio station of this kind west of the Mississippi. Originally KBYU broadcast to the Allen Hall, Amanda Knight Hall, and Knight-Mangum Hall. In 1948 KBYU began to broadcast city wide, but in 1951 the broadcasts were again limited to campus. KBYU was off the air during the 1952-1953 school year due to technical problems. In 1960 KBYU began broadcasting on an FM frequency, and its name was changed to KBGR.
