It wasn’t until 1941 that the station moved to its current location, 920 k Hz.
Craney left the station in 1927 to found KGIR in Butte, Montana, but returned to Spokane in 1945 to buy KFPY, which he rechristened KXLY in 1946.
It is the flagship station of The Cougar Sports Radio Network, broadcast Washington State Cougar football and men's basketball games. The station, which changed its call letters to KFPY in 1924, was housed in the Symons Building on 7 S. Beginning in 1925, audience members were welcomed to view live broadcasts—usually music programs or dramas—at “The Golden Concert Studios of KFPY” on the second floor, which boasted a curtain, a stage and seating for 150.
On September 17, 2015, KXLY added a translator on 100.3 FM.
KGA (1510 k Hz) is an AM All-Sports radio station based in Spokane, Washington.
KJRB has had a long and colorful history showcasing many famous announcers including Randy Evans and Treasure Goodtimes (now known as Ichabod Caine and Scallops), Larry "Super Jock" Lujack, Charlie Brown (who went to KUBE 93 FM and later KJR 95.7 in Seattle), Jim Kampmann, Danny Holiday (Daniel Thygesen), Joe Michaels, Jack "Commander Dunk" Gordon, Ross Woodward, Norm Gregory, Brian Gregory, Ricky Shannon, Suds Coleman, Rick Rydell, Marie Mc Callister, Steven West, Ralphie Koal, with Frank Hanel and "Sunshine" Shelly Monahan.
KJRB's call letters originally reflected the fact that it had been owned by Kaye-Smith Enterprises, the owners of then-Top 40 station KJR in Seattle.
Its three-letter call sign indicates it was one of the earliest radio stations in Washington, going on the air in 1927.
