KJMN, "Super Estrella 92.1", is a Spanish Contemporary station serving the Denver-Boulder area. The Entravision outlet operates at 92.1 MHz with an ERP of 50Kw and is licensed to Castle Rock, Colorado.

History

KJMN signed on the air in 1979 as Adult Contemporary KMJD, but would go through various formats and call letters as Rock outlets KRKY (1983-84), KADX (1984-88) and KZRZ (1988-89), Country KYBG (1989-95), and Modern Rock KNRX (1995-96).

During the KNRX stretch, 92.1 was called "92-X," and catered to the modern rock and alternative rock listeners. One DJ was known as Malcolm, and he spoke in a low monotone.

In March 1996 they shook up the market by luring the airstaffers away from Rhythmic Top 40 KQKS (then known as KS104.3) and launched KJMN "JAMN' 92.1". During its tenure they would attack KQKS on air and on the streets, but the tactics would backfire the following November when KQKS was sold to Jefferson-Pilot, who would later shake up the airwaves in February 1997 by moving KQKS to 107.5 and quickly reclaimed their listeners and ratings.

After EXCL Communications (later Entravision) acquired the station in January 1997, they pulled the plug on "JAMN' 92.1" the following March to bring Denver its first Spanish FM outlet, launching Spanish AC "Radio Romántica 92.1", but kept the KJMN calls. However by 2004 they would flip to Entravision's Spanish Top 40 "Super Estrella" format. The station is currently a "satellite" repeater station programmed out of Los Angeles, California, running local Denver advertising. No original programming is done in Denver.
