Construction permit[edit]

This frequency (107.7) was supposed to be the planned CP for KGGG, but the application was cancelled and deleted in 2010, over issues with the Federal Aviation Administration over its transmitter location.[2]

On June 15, 2012 KIMI filed an application to modify the existing U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) construction permit. It had been planned to be 6,000 watts at 107.9 MHz. The station moved to 107.7 MHz, changed the city of license to Sidney, Iowa, moved to a new transmitter site, increased ERP to 50,000 watts and increased HAAT to 124 meters.

107.7 KIMI signed on around February 9, 2013 testing with classic rock music.[3]

In late April 2016, it was announced that 107.7 KIMI Malvern IA was being sold to Educational Media Foundation and slated as a satellite of 92.7 KYRA FM in Thousand Oaks, CA to service the Omaha, NE Metro area with Christian Rock from the nationally syndicated Air 1 network. As of October 2016, the station was granted a special authority to operate with reduced power of 110 watts.[4] It has been broadcasting a commercial-less classic rock format since October 14, 2016.[5]
