History[edit]

The previous Logo for KIKT under the previous monkier Kik-FM

The station went on the air as KGVL-FM on 1984-04-02. On 1984-09-04, the station changed its call sign to the current KIKT.[2]

Has aired different formats, including top 40 in the past. DJs who moved on to major market airwaves include Walt "the Trooper" Troup (KSCS/Dallas), Trey Elliot (KRSR Dallas) and Mike Sheppard (KRSR, KVIL, KZPS Dallas).

With the recent change of logo and motto, "Hometown Radio" KIKT-FM was known as KIK-FM and played a variety of Country favorites.

KIK-FM carried on the tradition of broadcasting local events such as the Annual Rally Around Greenville, Greenville's Business Expo, Greenville Lions Friday Night Lights Tailgate Parties. Currently KIKT carries local area sports as well as local area events.

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.[3] 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.
