KCRR is a radio station serving Waterloo, Cedar Falls, and surrounding cities with a classic rock format. This station broadcasts on FM frequency 97.7 MHz and is owned by Townsquare Media. Cory Ford is Brand Manager/Program Director/Webmaster/Afternoon Host for KCRR and Elwin Huffman serves as morning news host. KCRR carries the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Show.

On August 30, 2013, a deal was announced in which Townsquare Media would acquire 53 Cumulus stations, including KCRR, for $238 million. The deal was part of Cumulus' acquisition of Dial Global; Townsquare and Dial Global are both controlled by Oaktree Capital Management.[1][2] The sale to Townsquare was completed on November 14, 2013; KCRR was one of three stations (along with KKHQ-FM and KOEL-FM) that were placed in a divestiture trust for eventual resale within two years.[3] In December 2016, the Federal Communications Commission approved Townsquare's request to reacquire the stations from the divestiture trust.[4]
