Description: KVGS is a commercial radio station located in Meadview, Arizona, broadcasting to the Las Vegas metropolitan area on 107.9 FM. KVGS airs an Alternative Rock format branded as 107.9 THE ALTERNATIVE. Unlike many Alternative stations, 107.9 focuses more on playing more gold titles than current titles (although current titles are not completely phased out).The station is licensed to Meadview, Arizona with its transmitter just outside Dolan Springs, Arizona. The station has a full-power class C transmitter, and a 2,500 watt booster on The Stratosphere Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada to help fill in the signal in metro Las Vegas. The station has been broadcasting since October 2005 as AREA 108 and in October 2007 re-branded as AREA 107.9. In September 2009 it re-branded again as 107.9 THE ALTERNATIVE.Before the current format, 107.9 was V-108, launched in 2002 at first as a Rhythmic Top 40 formatted station. Months later, it shifted to an Urban Adult Contemporary format which lasted for three years, then started its journey as an alternative-based radio station AREA 108.Radio stations KOAS(FM)105.7 and KVGS(FM)107.9 have on-channel FM boosters broadcasting from an antenna at the top of The Stratosphere. Licensed as KOAS-FM1 and KVGS-FM1, they are the only radio stations with transmitters at the tower. However, the signals being transmitted from this structure are relatively low-power and only cover the immediate Las Vegas area on a "fill in" or "booster" basis. Both of these stations have their main transmitter sites located elsewhere, and those transmitter sites are what give these stations more wide spread, regional coverage.
