History[edit]

The station originally signed on 96.7 FM in 1992 as KCQV with an oldies format as "Kool 96.7". Kool 96.7 later changed its format to a talk format. In 2003, the then-KVMI moved from its 5 kilowatt 96.7 signal to a new 25 kilowatt 103.9 frequency at a new transmitter site.

The move to 103.9 also encountered a format change back to oldies as "Kool 103.9". Increasing competition from KEGK "Eagle 106.9" forced KVMI to change its format to adult contemporary as "Star 103.9" in 2004.

The station changed its call sign to the current KZTK on March 13, 2014.
