History[edit]

Pulaski County Broadcasters, Inc. assigned the license for the station to Ozark Broadcasting, Inc. on September 29, 2003. Also assigned was the license for sister station KJPW-FM (now KOZQ-FM), in a transaction valued at $735,000.[3] Ozark assigned the licenses for both stations, as well as KBNN, KFBD-FM, KJEL, and KIIK, to Goodradio.TV, LLC on May 9, 2007.[4] On September 10, 2007, the licenses for all six stations were further assigned to the current owner, Waynesville/Lebanon License Co, LLC, on a pro forma basis.[5]

Gary Knehans was honored by the Waynesville City Council on Sept. 19, 2013, for fifty years of service as a reporter with the radio station. Knehans was hired by the original owners of the radio station about half a year after it went on the air, and now serves as operations manager for KJPW/KFBD as well as two other stations..
