KKLI (106.3 FM) is a radio station broadcasting an Adult Contemporary format. Licensed to Widefield, Colorado, USA, it serves the Colorado Springs area. The station is currently owned by Clear Channel Communications.
The station signed on in the mid-1980s as KKQX, broadcasting a soft AC format. It changed to its present call letters KKLI in 1988. The station has used various forms of the 'Lite' moniker since its sign-on.
The station was owned by Colorado Springs radio veteran Henry Tippie (d/b/a Tippie Communications, Inc.) in the early 1990s. Following deregulation in 1996, Citadel Broadcasting in Colorado Springs (then KKFM and KKMG) acquired the station.
In a multi-station swap deal, KKLI was sold in 1999 to Capstar Broadcasting, which merged with Chancellor Broadcasting to become AMFM Inc. and soon after absorbed into Clear Channel Communications.
