Previously a smooth jazz station licensed as KNIK-FM, the call sign was a reference to the Knik River. On August 27, 2009, the station began stunting as a prelude to a format change bu playing the top 100 songs of 1970 through 1989, one year per day. On September 15, 2009, KNIK-FM started playing a Light Rock and "Yesterday's Best Music" adult contemporary music format, branded as "Lite 105.7".[3] On September 16, 2009, KNIK-FM changed their call letters to KNLT.[1]

On August 31, 2012, at 2:00 PM, after playing "Mary Jane's Last Dance" by Tom Petty, KNLT flipped to Rhythmic AC, as "Movin 105.7", launching with "Bust a Move" by Young MC.

On September 18, 2012, KNLT changed their call letters to KMVN, to go with the "Movin' 105.7" branding.
