KWYY (95.5 FM) is a radio station in Casper, Wyoming branded as "My Country 95.5" and carrying a country music format. The station is currently owned by Townsquare Media.[1]

History[edit]

KWYY started out as KYOD, "Coyote Country, the New 104.7", at 104.7 FM in the mid 1990s as a country music station. It was moved to its current location on the FM dial in the late 1990s after being sold by Heart Media to Mountain States Broadcasting. The station was sold to Clear Channel Radio in 1999.[2] Clear Channel sold its Casper stations to GapWest Broadcasting in 2007; GapWest was folded into Townsquare Media on August 13, 2010.[3]

KWYY was recently re-branded as "My Country 955" and is using local DJs, rather than the satellite programing it used previously.

Programing[edit]

On-air DJs include Trisha Berry, Brian Scott (also at sister station KTWO), and Rodeo Rick.

Each day at noon the station plays the Star Spangled Banner. In addition during the noon hour the station airs "The 90s at Noon", a show that features country music from the 1990s.

The nationally syndicated "Taste of Country Nights" air weeknights on the station. The station also airs a nationally syndicated radio shows like "The Crook And Chase Countdown."

The station airs news broadcasts from its sister station KTWO (AM). Weather forecasts are provided by Cheyenne, WY based Day Weather.
