KANR was first issued a construction permit for 92.7 FM on February 10, 1993, issued as KUOY. The station signed on as an All-News station on August 12, 1994, and has been the only station in Wichita providing that format. Early in 2000, it became the new home to Smooth Jazz KWSJ. It was formerly located on 105.3 (now Hot AC KFBZ). In June of that year, KWSJ would relocate yet again, this time to 98.7 (now KFH-FM). 92.7 would flip to Rhythmic Top 40 as "Fly 92.7" to compete against Rhythmic KDGS "Power 93.9", whose studios are (literally) a few hundred feet from KANR. Former KDGS personality Christopher "Kidd Chris" Foley was also a DJ on KANR and was fired for an infamous run-in with police (he is now at WEBN in Cincinnati). A year later, the station flipped to Alternative. Despite the signal's moderate to poor coverage over Wichita, KANR had a large following of listeners with its Alternative format. The station changed format in September 2006 to Spanish, branded as "Fiesta 92.7". KANR listeners were upset over the format change. The Wichita market was without an alternative station until August 29, 2014, when KTHR dropped classic rock.
On December 21, 2011, KANR moved to 99.7 FM.
In March 2013, Daniel D. Smith sold the station to Air Capitol Media Group, LLC for $2 million; the transaction was consummated on June 28, 2013. On April 1, Air Capitol registered various domains under the name "Lite", as well as "Wichitas997.com", signaling that the "Fiesta" format will come to an end by May 1, when Air Capitol takes over the station via a Time Brokerage Agreement. It is also been hinted by the Wichita Eagle that Brett Harris, formerly of KRBB, will be a part of the new station when his non-compete clause expires in the summer.
