KRRY (100.9 FM, "Y101") is a radio station licensed to serve Canton, Missouri, USA. The station is owned by Double O Radio and the license is held by Double O Missouri Corporation.

It broadcasts an adult-oriented CHR (Top 40) music format to the greater Quincy, Illinois, and Hannibal, Missouri, area.[2] Since it plays a mix of hit music such as a Hot Adult Contemporary, but adds hip-hop and Rhythmic Contemporary product to its rotation at night like a Top 40 (CHR), thus it could be considered an Adult Top 40.

History[edit]

In January 1989, Lewis and Clark Broadcasting, Inc., reached an agreement to sell KQCA to Bick Broadcasting Company. The deal was approved by the Federal Communications Commission on February 22, 1989, and the transaction was consummated on March 3, 1989.[3]

The new owners had the FCC change the station's call letters to KBXB on September 21, 1989.[1] The station was assigned the current KRRY call letters by the FCC on September 1, 1995.[1]

In May 2006, Bick Broadcasting Company reached an agreement to sell KRRY to Double O Radio.[4] The deal was approved by the FCC on June 30, 2006, and the transaction was consummated on August 31, 2006.[5][6]
