KCFR-FM is a radio station in Denver, owned and operated by Colorado Public Radio and simulcast to several AM and FM stations throughout the state. The signals from some of these stations extend into eastern Utah and southern Wyoming; some of KCFR-FM's programming is heard on KPRE 89.9 FM in Vail, which carries programming from classical music station KVOD located in Denver. On July 9, 2008, CPR moved the KCFR-FM news-talk programming in Denver to 90.1 FM. The KVOD classical programming, broadcast on that frequency moved to the newly acquired 88.1 FM signal. 1340 AM continued as a simulcast of KCFR-FM until October 31, 2011, when it flipped to a local music-based AAA outlet known as "OpenAir Radio". KCFR-FM, KDCO and KCFC broadcast programming from National Public Radio, Public Radio International, as well as an original daily interview show called Colorado Matters. KCFR broadcasts in HD. HD1 is a simulcast of the analog signal, HD2 is a Classical music format. KCFR was owned by the University of Denver, between 1970 and 1983, on 90.1 FM.
In 1984, the station was transferred to a community board of directors which formed Colorado Public Radio. It has always been an NPR affiliate. In the mid-90s, 1340 AM became KKYD "Radio AAHS", the Denver outlet of the first nationwide network of radio programs for children; the downfall of Radio AAHS came when the Walt Disney Company established Radio Disney. After the sign-off of Radio AAHS in January 1998, Children's Broadcasting Corporation needed programming for the network of stations until it could find buyers. KKYD and the other nine CBC-owned and operated Radio AAHS affiliates became an outlet for "Beat Radio", which broadcast electronic dance music 12 hours a day until late October 1998. In September 2000, CPR acquired the intellectual properties of then-AM classical station KVOD. In March 2001, KVOD replaced KCFR at 90.1 FM and KCFR was moved to 1340 AM. On July 9, 2008, KCFR-FM moved back to 90.1 FM, with KVOD moving to the newly acquired 88.1 FM frequency.
