KRAJ (100.9 FM) is a
radio stationbroadcasting a Rhythmic Contemporary Hit Radioformat. Licensed to Johannesburg, California, USA, it serves the Antelope Valleyarea. The station is owned by Adelman Broadcasting.
KRAJ signed on in January 1999 as 100.9 The Zone, simulcasting a
Hot ACformat from Jones Radio Networksbut also included some local programming hosted from a studio in Quartz Hill, California. In the summer of 2004, following KCELdropping oldiesin favor of Regional Mexican, KRAJ started simulcasting Jones' "Good Time Oldies" format, and the format of the local programs was adjusted shortly after. In the first few months, KRAJ kept their local specialty shows from The Zone but later replaced them with syndicated programs that were originally heard on KCEL.
In the summer of 2005, KFXM signed on with an oldies format from
Lancaster, California, and many of KRAJ's listeners migrated to KFXM because it had a stronger and cleaner signal. In late 2005, KRAJ dropped the oldies format in favor of a Hip hopformat called 100.9 The Party Station, the format stayed but the name was changed to 100.9 The Heat in summer 2006.
The oldies format was moved to
KLOA (AM)at 1240 AM, also owned by Adelman. 1240 AM cannot be heard in the Antelope Valley.
