History[edit]

Station's former logo

KCKN signed on the air for the first time in December 1965 under the callsign KSWS. It was co-owned with KSWS-TV (now KOBR-TV). The station was assigned the call sign KCKN on 1987-04-20. on 2000-11-13, the station changed its call sign to KXEM, on 2000-12-01 to KINF, on 2006-01-12 back to the current KCKN,[3] A sister FM station was purchased in 1986. The station was using the callsign KBCQ at the time programming Top 40 and the FM station had the KCKN callsign and a country format. In April 1987, the callsigns and formats of the two stations were flipped and 1020 became KCKN Country and the FM became KBCQ-FM Top 40. In the early 90s, KCKN switched to a light adult contemporary/heavy local news format. Nighttime programming has been religion for years. In late August 2005, while operating under an LMA, the station went silent due to technical problems. The LMA was ended and the station signed back on the air in early February, 2006 under the callsign KCKN programming Classic Country music. In 2012, the station was sold to Radio Vision Cristiana Subsidiary Corp.[4]
