KICT-FM, branded as T-95, is a radio station in Wichita, Kansas. It is a mainstream rock music station operating on 95.1 FM. The station is owned by Journal Communications. Its studios are located with television station KWCH in Wichita and the transmitter is located outside Colwich, Kansas.

History[edit]

The station began as a country music station in the 1970s. It would adopt its current format on January 24, 1979, with the first song being "Rock & Roll Band" by Boston.

On July 30, 2014, it was announced that The E.W. Scripps Company would acquire Journal Communications in an all-stock transaction. The combined firm will retain their broadcast properties and spin off their print assets as Journal Media Group.[1] KICT-FM, their sister radio stations in the Wichita area and 2 TV stations were not included in the merge; in September, Journal filed to transfer these stations to Journal/Scripps Divestiture Trust (with Kiel Media Group as trustee).[2][3]
