History and ownership[edit]

KDKT signed on the air in 1978 under the ownership of Mercer Broadcasting Inc, with a Country music format known as "Coal Country" which reflected the coal industry in Western North Dakota. In 2000, the station dropped Country in favor of an Adult Contemporary music format. In 2006, DSN Radio acquired the station and flipped the format to Sports radio, with the popular CBS Sports Radio network.

In March 2016, DSN entered into an agreement with Synergy Broadcast Group of North Dakota to purchase KLTQ-FM 97.9, providing a Class-A FM simulcast of KDKT Sports Radio, which rimshots the Bismarck market from Beulah, North Dakota.
