KDGS, also known as "Power 93.9", is a rhythmic contemporary hits outlet serving the Wichita, Kansas market. The station is licensed to Andover, Kansas, is owned by Entercom and broadcasts at 93.9 MHz with an ERP of 25 kW. It is the only rhythmic-formatted station in Kansas, although it slightly leans towards Urban Contemporary, (KPRS in Kansas City is based in Missouri, and airs an urban contemporary format), but at the same time, counters rival KZCH's rhythmic-leaning Top 40/CHR direction.

Station history[edit]

The station that is now KDGS was assigned a construction permit on July 23, 1993, and issued as KOAS. The station officially signed on the air as KDLE on August 10, 1993, and aired an Adult Contemporary format. By the end of the year, KDLE flipped the format to Urban Contemporary, filling the void that was left by the previous incarnations of KBUZ, which resided at 106.5 and 99.1 respectively. On December 8, 1995, they changed calls to KDGS and shifted to a Rhythmic Contemporary Hit direction with Rhythmic Pop/Dance product incorporated into its R&B/Hip-Hop fare, which they still continue with today. At some point in 1995, the station's moniker changed from "K-Dogs" to "Power 93.9." In 1999, the station was acquired by Entercom Communications. KDGS was one of the first stations for Chris Foley a.k.a. Kidd Chris, who is now at WEBN in Cincinnati as a weekday morning rock jock.
