KDLO-FM (96.9 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a country music format serving Watertown, South Dakota, United States. The station is currently owned by Alpha Media, through licensee Digity 3E License, LLC. The 100,000 kilowatt 1600 ft tower is located in Garden City, South Dakota.


KDLO-FM went on the air in 1968 and was the sister station to KDLO-TV, which was licensed to nearby Florence. Midcontinent Broadcasting owned both stations until 1994, when KDLO-FM was sold to the Sorenson Broadcasting Corporation. Sorenson was later bought by Digity, which in turn sold all its stations to Alpha Media.


John Seiber formerly of Pheasant Country 103 KBWS-FM in Sisseton, SD is the morning announcer for this station. Big Country 96.9 plays Country's Biggest Hits and features Earl Pitts, Trent Loos, Territorial Rodeo Update and Farmer's Market from 10:00-10:45 am Monday through Friday serving South Dakota, North Dakota and Minnesota.[1]
