KYSS-FM (94.9 FM) is a commercial radio station in Missoula, Montana, airing a Country music format. The station is also one of two Country outlets in Missoula competing for listeners, the other being KGGL. Despite the "KISS" sounding call letters and it having once been owned by Clear Channel Communications, it has no relation to the Top 40 branding. It also shares the same Buck Owens-trademarked red, white & blue guitar logo as KNIX-FM/Phoenix, Arizona.

Ownership[edit]

In October 2007, a deal was reached for KYSS to be acquired by GAP Broadcasting II LLC (Samuel Weller, president) from Clear Channel Communications as part of a 57 station deal with a total reported sale price of $74.78 million.[1] What eventually became GapWest Broadcasting was folded into Townsquare Media on August 13, 2010.[2]
