The station signed on in 2002 as WDJD but was forced by the FCC to change to a "K" callsign to conform with most other U.S.-licensed radio stations located in the Pacific.[3] The station was assigned the KJAL call letters by the Federal Communications Commission on September 12, 2002.[1]

The station had filed an application with the FCC to change its licensed broadcast frequency from 585 kHz to 630 kHz.

The station's license was cancelled by the FCC on February 1, 2014 for failure to file an application for license renewal.
