KDVV (100.3 FM) is a radio station broadcasting an album-oriented rock format. Licensed to Topeka, Kansas, USA, the station serves the Topeka area. The station is currently owned by Cumulus Media and features programing from Westwood One.[2]

History[edit]

1960-1976: KTOP-FM - K-Top[edit]

KTOP-FM was the original Topeka country powerhouse. However, KTOP-FM faded quickly after the sign-on of KTPK in 1974.[3]

1976-1978: KDVV - K-Dove[edit]

KDVV broadcast a Christian format for a couple of years.[3]

1978-1989: KDVV - V-100[edit]

KDVV flipped to top 40 in 1978, keeping the call letters from the previous format. The focus wavered back and forth between pop and rock.[3]

1989-1996: KDVV V-100.3[edit]

Westwood One's AOR feed provided much of the programming.[3]

1996-1998: KDVV - V-100[edit]

KDVV returned to locally-produced programming around 1996, giving Topeka its first classic rock station. Cumulus bought KDVV in 1998 from family-owned Midland Broadcasting.[3]

1998-present: KDVV - V-100[edit]

KDVV updated its format to a more current AOR playlist in 1998. The station has made it all the way to #2 behind WIBW-FM in the overall Topeka ratings. The loss of KLZR's modern rock format helped KDVV. KDVV broadcast KU sports from 2000-2006. Kansas State Wildcat sports moved to KDVV in 2006. Around 2008, KDVV began simulcasting on KDVB (96.9 MHz), licensed to Effingham, Kansas.[3] More recently V100 became the Topeka affiliate of the Bob & Tom Show and started to add more Heavy Metal and Modern Rock. V 100 serves now as the de facto active rock station for Topeka, Junction City and Manhattan since the nearest Active Rock station provides only rim shot coverage.
