Notes: This station featured Christian oriented programming for years until the late 90s when Citadel Broadcasting (then-Caribou Broadcasting) bought the station and flipped it to sports/talk after acquiring both Sports Talk 1340 (a time-brokered operation on Clear Channel’s KEBC-AM 1340) and SportsRadio 640 (WWLS-AM 640).
This station flipped to country April 11, 2002 at 6 a.m. as “K-Bull 104.9.” The sports format formerly on this frequency moved to 105.3. The country format moved to 96.9 FM at 3 p.m. on Christmas Day of 2002, the part-time modern rock format on 105.3 (The Spy) was simulcasted on 104.9 and other Citadel stations to help build awareness. At midnight on December 26, 2002, The Sports Animal returned to 104.9 FM after an eight month absence.
In October 2006, Citadel swapped the sports format with CHR/Rhythmic sister Wild 97-Dot-9, sending the FM simulcast partner to 97.9.
