In 2011, the station call letters where changed to KKVM to reflect the new format designed and launched by Chuck Lontine of Marconi Media Ventures. Mr. Lontine also created the format, logo and design of the stations overall sound and audio imaging with the help of music programer Jayme A. Bregman. That new sound, "The Mile" is a popular mix of soft alternative rock music. The Mile was named after the popular background ski trail "the Mile" between Vail Mountain and Minturn, Colorado by Mr. Lontine.
Mr. Lontine's firm Marconi also owns a percentage of the radio station. The station is located on Main Street in Minturn, Colorado to reflect its local roots in the Eagle County community.
