KAJM (104.3 FM, "Mega 104.3") is a commercial Urban Adult Contemporary music radio station in Camp Verde, Arizona, broadcasting to Phoenix, Arizona.

The station began in the summer of 1983 as KKJJ 103.9, a Class A station licensed to Payson AZ, that would remain until 1987 when they got the approval and completed the move to 104.3. The original format was country.

Callsigns since then included first KAFM then KRIM which was in use during part of the KBZR simulcast. The KRIM calls once dropped for KAJM were picked up later when KRIM-LP took them.

Previous formats include country, a AOR/Modern Rock/CHR format called “The Blaze”, a simulcast of CHR/Rhythmic KBZR-Coolidge (later KPTY-Gilbert), a return of the “Blaze” format (under the new name “CD Rock”), Traditional Oldies as “K-Best”, and a 60’s-90’s Rhythmic Oldies format, under the name “Arizona Jamz”, featuring sweepers with “Beavis and Butthead” sound bytes.

Carey Edwards, an established Phoenix air talent who had most recently been programming Rhythmic Oldies KGMG “Mega 106.3″ in Tucson, was brought to the station. Soon after his arrival, allaccess.com reported that KAJM would be “relaunched” soon. On April 20, 2001, at 5:00 pm, as Edwards applied the formula from KGMG — KAJM became “Mega 104.3 & 99.3″.

In June 2007, KAJM moved its signal at 104.3 MHz from a location north of Payson, to Wildflower Mountain near Crown King, and changed its city of license to Camp Verde. Despite a power reduction, this location gives the station a little better coverage in the Phoenix metropolitan area, mainly in the western suburbs. The 99.3 translator would become part of KNRJ.
