KIKV-FM (100.7 FM, "Kik FM") is a radio station airing a country format. Its sister station is KULO 94.3 FM. Both studios are located at 604 3rd Ave. West in Alexandria, Minnesota.

The station is licensed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to nearby Sauk Centre, Minnesota.

On-air staff include Rick Blanshan, Pete Holt, and Jim Rohn mornings, Paul Sorum afternoons, and Jill Kelly evenings.


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).[1] The two stations were separated in 1985, when KCMT-FM was purchased by Lusk Broadcasting[2] and became KIKV-FM.[3] BDI Broadcasting bought the station in 1989;[4] 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.[5] Hubbard already owned television station KSAX (channel 42, a satellite of KSTP-TV) in Alexandria.[6] The sale was completed on February 27, 2015, at a purchase price of $8 million for the 16 stations and one translator.[7]
