Sitting in with KHOL

Due to broken equipment, KHOL is available only through streaming.

UPDATE, 4:45 p.m. Monday: As of roughly 2:30 p.m. Monday afternoon, KHOL's backup transmitter is operational. The community radio station said they should be "back to full strength in the near future."

ORIGINAL STORY, 5 p.m. Sunday: You may have noticed a lack of community radio when you turn your dial to 89.1.

That’s because an equipment malfunction has cut KHOL’s broadcast on its usual frequency. Midafternoon Friday, the station went down, and it located the problem Saturday in the studio transmitter link that sits above Snow King.

Unfortunately, KHOL said in a press release, the problem can’t be fixed locally. The broken part was sent to California on Saturday, but the station doesn’t have a timeline for when it will be repaired and back in place.

The station said it will update listeners once the part is repaired, but the faithful can still listen to the broadcasts, which are streaming just fine, on their computers, smartphones and other internet-equipped devices.

“This is a great time to download our app to your phone,” the station said in its press release.

The KHOL stream is available in both the TuneIn and Radio FM apps in the Apple and Android app stores, and those who prefer to listen through the website can click on the Listen Live icon at

If you’re jonesing for the community radio station to hit the airwaves again and want the most up-to-date information, KHOL will post the progress of the repair on social media.
