Ownership[edit]

Former branding.

In December 2003, Dakota Communications Ltd. (Duane Butt, president) reached an agreement to acquire this station and KZNC from Three Eagles Communications as part of a two-station deal for a reported $400,000.[3] Dakota Communications has operated Huron's other two licensed radio stations, KOKK and KORN-FM, since 1975.[4]

August 2013 KIJV dropped its Oldies format in favor for Hot Adult Contemporary. Dakota Communications had previously operated a Hot AC format in the Huron market before moving KXLG to the Watertown, South Dakota market.

History[edit]

KIJV began broadcasting June 30, 1947, as a Mutual affiliate (supplemented by transcriptions from NBC) on 1340 kHz with 250 W power. The first program featured civic officials and musicians from Huron College. The station was owned by the James Valley Broadcast Company.[5]
