Notes: This station moved closer to Oklahoma City from Weatherford and changed its call letters from KWEY to KOJK. This station used ABC Networks’ “Jack FM” network for programming. In March 2010, the KKNG brand was moved to 97.3 from 93.3 KKNG while tweaking the former “King Country” format back to classic country.
In 2013, Tyler Media bought Renda Broadcasting’s Oklahoma City cluster of radio stations, FCC regulations required them to divest of some of their current group. KKNG-FM was sold to WPA radio, which in turn flipped the format to Catholic, simulcasting the EWTN for a portion of its programming.
While licensed to Weatherford, Okla. in western Oklahoma, the station was very successful at 97.3 The Coyote — a country station. Wright Broadcasting sold the station and moved the country format to replace a lesser performing Hot AC station (then-KQMX) the company owned in nearby Clinton, Okla.
