History[edit]

KTUR (later KCEY), signed on in 1949. In 1977, when an FM station was added, a new building went up. K-MIX 98 was automated adult contemporary with DJs recording their shows to give the impression of live broadcasts.[1]

In 1995, KMIX-FM became KWNN, simulcasting Rhythmic CHR KWIN.[2]
