Description: KVBE (94.5 FM "94.5 The Vibe") is a Top 40 music formatted radio station serving the Moapa Valley and Las Vegas area. The Aurora Media, LLC outlet operates at 94.5 MHz with an ERP of 93kW and is licensed to Moapa, Nevada. This station is currently (as of October 2008) operating without live disc jockeys.94.5 signed on as KMOA under the branding Rehab Radio on May 2, 2008. Rehab Radio was a stunt format that aired while the station was testing the transmitter, playing Dance music. The call letters changed to KVBE on May 6, 2008 and the identity as 94.5 The Vibe was born on May 8, 2008. The launch was co-consulted by Dance radio veterans Trevor Simpson from the now defunct KNGY-Energy 92.7 in San Francisco, California, Joel Salkowitz from the now defunct WNYZ-Pulse 87.7 in New York City, New York, and Mark "Tic Tak" Allen of WXRK-92.3 Now FM in New York City, New York. The Vibe was programmed by industry veteran Rob Walker as a Dance Hits format, with imaging done by Mitch Craig. In November 2009, KVBE's signal repeater added crucial coverage within the Las Vegas area, since the primary coverage area does not clearly reach the city of Las Vegas in most places.In March 2010, the station's operations were taken over by D2 Media, LLC and began reimaging itself on air (with Mitch Craig being phased out, replaced by Joe Vlazny formerly "Joey V" from KNGY-Energy 92.7 in San Francisco), launched a new website (with vibevegas.com being phased out, replaced by 945thevibe.com), and a new logo was unveiled. More mixshows and some of the world's top talent would be featured including: John Digweed, Carl Cox, Roger Sanchez, Manufactured Superstars, Eddie Halliwell, Markus Schulz, Armin Van Buuren, Jordan Stevens, Paul Oakenfold, DJ Vegas Vibe, DJ Maze, Matt Darey, Dave Onex, and Beaux Tech.As of July 2010, while still claiming itself as a Dance station, KVBE's playlist format has been refocused to "Dance friendly" Top 40 focusing mainly on remixes of Rhythmic tracks, as well as original Rhythmic tracks. The new format is under guidance by Michael Oaks (Mike O.), a former program director of now defunct KNRJ-Energy 92.7 & 101.1 in Phoenix, Arizona and Mark "Tic Tak" Allen of WXRK-92.3 Now FM in New York City. The refocus in format has been welcomed by some, but also has resulted in a backlash from many previously loyal listeners.
