The station went on the air in October 1970 as KCMT-FM, owned by the Central Minnesota Television Company along with KCMT television (channel 7; now KCCO-TV, a satellite of WCCO-TV). The two stations were separated in 1985, when KCMT-FM was purchased by Lusk Broadcasting and became KIKV-FM. BDI Broadcasting bought the station in 1989; the station eventually came under the Omni Broadcasting banner.
Hubbard Broadcasting, Inc. announced on November 13, 2014 that it would purchase the Omni Broadcasting stations, including KIKV-FM. Hubbard already owned television station KSAX (channel 42, a satellite of KSTP-TV) in Alexandria. The sale was completed on February 27, 2015, at a purchase price of $8 million for the 16 stations and one translator.
