In 1970, the Bible Institute doing business as Biola Schools and Colleges, sold KBBI and sister station KBBW in San Diego to PSA Broadcasting, a subsidiary of San Diego-based Pacific Southwest Airlines, for $1.15 million. PSA changed KBBI's call sign to KPSA in 1971, followed by KEZM in 1973. PSA operated four stations in all with easy listening formats. On September 4, 1974, the station changed its call letters to KLVE and began airing a soft rock format, using the slogans "Something to Love", "Get Your Rock Soft".

In September 1975, K-Love Broadcasting Inc. bought the station. By the late 1970s, the new ownership ushered in the first Spanish-language FM station in Los Angeles. KLVE has been the market's leading Spanish-language station for decades, it has maintained that lead with the advent of Arbitron's Portable People Meter electronic ratings measurement. With a weekly audience of nearly two million people, KLVE is among the most listened-to Spanish-language radio stations in the U. S. second to WSKQ in New York City, according to Nielsen Audio.

In 2017, EMF announced that it would purchase KSWD from Entercom to satisfy divestments required by the latter company for government approval of its merger with CBS Radio, switch the station to K-Love programming.

EMF reached an agreement with Univision in order to use the "K-Love" brand on the station by airing an hourly identifier stating 100.3 as'Positive Encouraging 100.3' as opposed to'K-LOVE' as other affiliates of the station air. KLVE is the same programming as Univision's corporate "Amor" format used elsewhere. In March 2019, the station became the flagship for Univision's new Uforia Audio Network.

Bella Andre

Bella Andre is an American author of more than 40 contemporary romance novels. As of 2019, Andre is the New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Sullivans series and her books have sold over 8 million copies, she writes as Lucy Kevin for the Four Weddings and a Fiasco series and the Married in Malibu series. Bella Andre was born in New York; when she was four years old, her family moved to Northern California. Her mother was an avid reader and her father an author of non-fiction books in the field of economics, she studied economics from Stanford University. After graduating from Stanford, Andre read The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. While practicing the "morning pages ritual" described in the book, which encourages authors to begin their day by writing three pages, Andre began "having two characters speak to one another in my head." The dialogue, according to Andre, continued relentlessly until she had to put the rest of it in writing, leading to her first finished novel, Authors in Ecstasy.

Over the next year, Andre had several other books published by Ellora's Cave, a publisher based in Akron, Ohio. Her fifth novel, Take Me, was published by Simon & Schuster in 2005 and was among the first in the genre to feature a plus-sized heroine. Andre went on to publish additional four novels with Schuster; that same year, Andre shifted her focus to writing in a new genre, that of romantic suspense. In the subsequent year she published her first novel in Wild Heat with Random House. In 2007, Publishers Weekly described Andre writing as “empowered stories enveloped in heady romance”. In 2010 Andre published two novels with Hachette Book Group. Though being published with major publishers, Andre was displeased with subjects such as the cover design and overall lack of reader-experience. According to Andre, dissatisfaction she had with the major publishers, Simon & Schuster, Random House and Hachette pushed her to experiment with independent publishing. In March 2010, after receiving her rights back from the publisher for her novel Authors in Ecstasy, Andre independently published the book through Amazon's new Kindle program as Take Me.

In July 2010 Andre went ahead and published Love Me, the sequel to Take Me, first published by Simon & Schuster. When publishing Love Me, Andre faced the Amazon author portal, a new platform for authors to use, she had to teach herself how to format an ebook, a novelty at the time and had no online instructions. Additionally, she taught; as part of the publicity for the novel, Andre wrote personal emails to every single reader who had contacted her during the previous five years, amounting to hundreds of personal emails. The two books sold well on Amazon and, being encouraged by the public response, Andre went on to publish the sequel to another book published by Simon & Schuster, naming the sequel Game for Love. Game for Love, published in December 2010, was distributed in Amazon's Kindle, as well as the new Barnes & Noble's Nook, launched a month prior. Within five weeks, Game for Love appeared on the top 25 on the Noble digital charts. Subsequently, Andre was featured in the Washington Post.

The article legitimized independently published authors, naming Andre a digital pioneer and "one of the hottest digital writers in America." Within the literary community, Andre's success was perceived as little more than vanity press. Following the unexpected response to Game For Love, Andre proceeded to publish books that major publishers had rejected. Since these books were aimed at a different readership, Andre published them under the nom de plume Lucy Kevin; the relative success of the subsequent four novels published as Lucy Kevin led Andre to contemplate venturing into a genre which she knew, from her experience, traditional publishers would have found too risky--publishing an eight-book series focusing on one family. Her editor at a traditional publishing house told her such a romance series would never sell. Having the freedom of not having to adhere to the rules of the publishing industry, Andre decided to write a series she wanted to read with characters who are "not fictional characters.

They're real people." She wanted the couples to be from big families. She drew her inspiration from author Julia Quinn's Bridgertons series, which focused on a family set in Regency England; the first book in the Sullivans series was called The Look of Love. Andre went on to complete the entire eight-book series that she intended to write, branched off to the larger, extended Sullivan family. Today, her Sullivans series comprises more than 20 books. In 2013 Andre had five books from The Sullivans series appear on The New York Times and The USA Today bestseller lists. In July 2013, following the appearance of five of Andre's titles on The New York Times and The USA Today bestsellers lists Andre was approached by multiple traditional New-York based publishers offering to acquire the rights for the Sullivans series. Due to her previous experience with traditional publishers, Andre was adamant on retaining the rights for the digital distribution of her novels, as well as the rights for foreign translations.

She was willing to negotiate terms on print publication in English alone, which subsequently led to negotiations with several publishers. In September 2013 Andre went on to sign an agreement with Harlequin MIRA, granting the rights for print of her first eight novels in the Sullivans series; the deal, of seven figures, was covered in Time Magazine. The 2013 deal was the first of its kind.
