KCAP (950 AM) is a radio station licensed to serve Helena, Montana. The station is owned by Kevin Terry, through licensee The Montana Radio Company, LLC. It airs a news/talk format.

The station went on the air November 1, 1976 as KMTX.[1] Until 2014, the station broadcast an adult standards format as "Classy 950."[2] In October 2014, Cherry Creek Radio announced that it would purchase KMTX from The Montana Radio Company and move its news/talk programming to KMTX from the original KCAP (1340 AM) and KBLL (1240 AM); those stations went off the air on November 5, the date that KMTX changed formats.[2][3] The station was assigned the KCAP call letters by the Federal Communications Commission on November 6.[4]


In June 2007, Paul Stark of KMTX was presented an E.B. Craney Broadcasting Award for excellence in Radio Station Promotion at the annual meeting of the Montana Broadcasters Association.[5] Kevin Skaalure of KTMX won a Craney for best Radio Public Service Campaign at the same ceremony.
