Station history[edit]

KTRS was formerly on 95.5 FM. That lasted from its sign-on date in 1981 until the late 1990s. KTRS, when it was on 95.5 in the early to mid '80s, was a typical Top 40 station that played everything from Diana Ross and Kool & the Gang to Pat Benatar and Journey. In the late '90s the station moved to 104.7 FM after being sold by Heart Media to Mountain States Broadcasting. For a short time in the late '90s after moving to 104.7 FM the station used the call letters KYOD. This was prior to the FCC granting a transfer of the KTRS call letters from its location at 95.5 FM.
