KLUC-FM is a commercial radio station located in Las Vegas, Nevada, broadcasting on 98.5 FM. KLUC airs a Rhythmic Contemporary music format, which tends to lean heavily pop, patterned like their pop-leaning rhythmic sister KZON Phoenix, Arizona. 98.5 KLUC has been a long time Top 40 station in Las Vegas. They were originally owned by Western Cities, sold to Nationwide in 1985, ARS in 1995, and then CBS Radio who owns them today. Up until 1978 they simulcasted with sister station 1140 AM. They briefly returned to a simulcast in 1990. From the mid-1970s to 1983, KLUC was a rock leaning Top 40. In 1977 KLUC experimented with a 'Disco Format' in the evenings but it was short lived. This changed in the fall of 1983 when KLUC added a lot of R&B and dance music product.
