History[edit]

The station was assigned the call letters KFIS 1981-02-23. On 2001-09-01, the station changed its call sign to KFIF and on 2004-08-03 to the current KITT.[2]

In June 2008, The FCC granted KITT-FM permission to upgrade from a Class A station to a Class C2 station, increase its power to 11,000 watts, and relocate the station to Wilson, WY. (serving Jackson Hole). The move was part of a complex proceeding (FCC Rule & Order 05-243 in which 42 stations in a five state area were affected. Following this proceeding, the FCC changed its rules to allow no more than four stations in a single change. At this time, KITT-FM remains in Soda Springs ID awaiting modifications by other stations in FCC rulemaking (05-243).

On May 29, 2009, the Fifth District Court in Washington County, UT appointed a receiver for US Capital, Incorporated, an investment company in Boulder, CO that foreclosed on Legecy Media, the owner of KITT and several other stations.

KITT's call letters were previously used in Las Vegas, NV, Pearl City, HI, Parowan, UT, San Diego, CA, and Shreveport, LA.

On September 18, 2014, KITT was sold to Jackson Hole Media LLC for $76,500.
