History[edit]

In December 2004, Community Radio, Inc., applied to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for a construction permit for a new broadcast radio station to serve Ravenna, Nebraska. The FCC granted this permit on February 25, 2005, with a scheduled expiration date of February 25, 2008.[3] The new station was assigned call sign "KKJK" on April 26, 2005.[4] After construction and testing were completed in June 2006, the station was granted its broadcast license on September 14, 2006.[5]

In October 2009, Legacy Communications, LLC, executed a February 2006 option to purchase the station's broadcast license and other assets from Community Radio, Inc., for $1,150,000. The FCC approved the application to transfer the license on January 8, 2010, and the sale was consummated on March 1, 2010.[6]
