History[edit]

This station received its original construction permit from the Federal Communications Commission on June 28, 2006.[3] The new station was assigned the call letters KRUG by the FCC on October 30, 2006.[1] The station, still under construction, flipped call signs to KHAD on April 2, 2009, in a swap with a sister station in Mills, Wyoming, now known as KZQL.[1]

In May 2009, White Park Broadcasting, Inc., reached an agreement to sell this station to The Casper Radio Group, Inc. The deal was approved by the FCC on June 5, 2009, and the transaction was consummated the same day.[4] KHAD received its license to cover from the FCC on June 8, 2009.[5]

Originally, the call letters "KHAD" had been assigned to an AM station in De Soto, Missouri, in 1968. This station closed in the late 1990s.
