History[edit]

On May 18, 2012, the Federal Communications Commission fined KZMX AM and its sister station, KZMX-FM, a combined $21,500 fine for various violations, including operation of the stations without any staff present, and inability to reach the station's staff.[2]

The station along with others owned by Mt. Rushmore Broadcasting filed for an extension of the special temporary authority in early 2015, due to staffing issues. It was reported that staff had unexpectedly resigned, and there was difficulty finding new employees.[3]
