KILO is a radio station broadcasting in Colorado Springs and Pueblo, Colorado. It also streams online at its website.

KILO features a current active rock format. The station is known for playing new bands well before many other stations will add them to their playlist and is usually one of the higher rated stations in Colorado Springs, always in the top five.[citation needed] Rich Hawk, who programmed the station for 27 years is widely considered one of the "fathers of active rock".[citation needed] On March 7, 2013 Rich Hawk died after falling into a coma in February.[1]

Additional information[edit]

The Pure Rock Panel is a "fan club" of sorts. It is used to inform its members of concerts and new releases, and to get feedback about the station.

During the winter months, the station organises ski trips to the nearby Monarch Ski Area.

The KILO website, in addition to providing information about the shows and presenters, gives details of upcoming concerts in the Colorado area, as well as weather reports and traffic information. It is also possible to listen to the station via the website.
