KBOS-FM (94.9 FM, "B95") is a commercial radio station located in Fresno, California, licensed to Tulare and broadcasting to the Fresno area. KBOS-FM airs a Rhythmic Contemporary music format under ownership of iHeartMedia, Inc.. Its studios are located on Shaw Avenue in North Fresno, and the transmitter tower is atop Eshom Point.

History[edit]

KBOS signed on with its Top 40 format in 1971, but it wasn't until the 1980s that they would evolve into its current direction, and since then have enjoyed dominant ratings, their first transmitter location was in the Blue Ridge Mountains along with KJUG-FM 106.7 with an ERP around 1,500 watts with an HAAT of 2,650 feet. They moved to Eshom Point to be closer to Fresno and to be able to increase power to 16.5 kW ERP.

They are also one of two Rhythmic Top 40s covering Fresno, Kings, Madera and Tulare counties, the other being Rhythmic rival KSEQ.
