Cumulus Media announced on June 19, 2009 that it will sell its Greenville cluster (including KIKT) to Alpha Horne, a local resident forming the company KGVL Radio LLC. Horne will pay the first $150,000 to Cumulus, who in Atlanta will hold the “seller paper” note for the remaining balance of $450,000. But one year later on June 29, 2010, Horne announced that he would resell the station along with sister station KGVL back to Cumulus. KIKT was then sold to Hunt County Radio along with KGVL shortly after the Cumulus resumed control.
KIKT was then renamed "93.5 The Coyote" Continuing the Country Format.
