The station went on the air in 1984 with a Top 40 (CHR) format as "96.7 K-Dog" competing with KEEZ "Z99". Over the years, the station has tweaked its on-air presentation slightly, going so far as to rebrand itself as "96.7 The Spot" in May 1999, with a modern AC orientation and the syndicated Bob and Sheri morning show. The station dropped the "Spot" moniker and transitioned to a broader hot adult contemporary format in August 2002, and flipped to adult hits in 2006. From April 2006 to July 2008, KDOG was simulcasted on sister station KNSG in Springfield, Minnesota, which serves Redwood Falls and Marshall. On September 4, 2009, KDOG returned to its CHR roots as "Hot 96.7".
