The 105.5 signal made its debut in 1982 with the call letters KIQS and was assigned to Willows, California until its move to Dunnigan in 1995 so it can target the Sacramento area. During the move, its owners sold the station to Pacific Spanish Network, who in 1996 changed the call letters to KLNA and broadcast a Spanish Contemporary format until 1998, when it flipped to a Top 40/Dance format as "Power 105." However, this attempt to bring a Dance format to Sacramento was hampered by its signal coverage from the northwestern area, a lack of advertising support and struggling ratings. It also had tough competition from KSFM, KBMB and KDND as well.
On May 4, 2001, Salem bought KLNA and immediately replaced the Dance format with Christian Contemporary as "105.5 The Fish," KKFS. But this attempt also had mixed results in its four years of existence, and 2005 became a simulcast of AM sister station KTKZ after Salem relocated KKFS. In 2008 Salem flipped KTKZ-FM to its Spanish Christian "Radio Luz" format and changed the call letters to KXMX, but by 2011 it would drop that format for business News/Talk and become KSAC-FM.
