KEIN (1310 AM) is a radio station broadcasting an adult standards/middle-of-the-road format. Licensed to Great Falls, Montana, USA, the station serves the Great Falls area. The station is currently owned by Community Communications and features programing from Westwood One, CBS Radio and Music Of Your Life.[1]

Off the air[edit]

KEIN was off the air for quite some time. According to property owner Creed Evans, someone broke into the transmitter building in January 2011, switched off breakers and killed the signal. Munson Radio president Steve Dow owns the license for KEIN, but he is locked out of the transmitter building because of a court order. That order, in favor of Evans who filed suit against Dow, was for failing to keep insurance and to maintain the facility. While Evans owns the facility, he lacks the expertise and the authority to turn the station back on. Records show the station is still silent, as of May 2013.[citation needed]

Resumption of Operations[edit]

The documents were filed with the FCC to resume on air operations. The details are unknown, but the filing was granted on April 24, 2014. FCC records show them back on the air as of that date.
