On April 30, 2008, the station informed the FCC that it had fallen silent on April 22, 2008, and citing financial reasons it requested special temporary authority to remain silent. The FCC granted this request on September 10, 2008, with a scheduled expiration of March 9, 2009. On February 26, 2009, KADQ-FM filed for an extension of their remain silent authority but this request was dismissed on January 7, 2010.

As of January 23, 2010[update], the station's April 7, 2009, application for remain silent authority had been accepted for filing but was pending further action by the Commission.
