City of License: Mustang
Power: 47 kw
Notes: This station is one of Hiram Champlin’s move-ins from Enid, Oklahoma to Oklahoma City. It started with 96.9 KNID (which is now KQOB). When 96.9 moved closer to OKC, the KNID Country format moved to 99.7, displacing Top-40 KXLS (which moved to 95.7). When Champlin wanted to move 99.7 to Mustang, KNID made another move, to 107.1, where it continues to serve Enid.
99.7 debuted in the Oklahoma City market in 2008 with Christian Inspirational format. That lasted less than two years in a crowded Christian Music market.
True Oldies 99.7 followed in 2010, using Scott Shannon’s “True Oldies” network for much of the programming.
In 2013, with 97.3 KKNG leaving the Classic Country format for Catholic programming, 99.7 flipped to Classic Country as “Hank-FM,” competing with 96.1 KXXY-FM. The station also airs University of Central Oklahoma football.
The station is located in the LakePointe West building in northwest Oklahoma City, two floors below the Cumulus Oklahoma City cluster of stations.
