KKLI (106.3 FM) is a radio station broadcasting an Adult Contemporary format. Licensed to Widefield, Colorado, USA, it serves the Colorado Springs area. The station is currently owned by iHeartMedia, Inc.. On November 6, 2014 K-Lite rebranded as Sunny 106.3.

History[edit]

The station signed on in 1987 as KKQX, broadcasting a soft AC format. It changed to its present call letters KKLI in 1988. The station used various forms of the 'Lite' moniker since its sign-on until November 6, 2014 when they rebranded as Sunny 106.3.

The station was owned by Colorado Springs radio veteran Henry Tippie (d/b/a Tippie Communications, Inc.) in the early 1990s. Following deregulation in 1996, Citadel Broadcasting in Colorado Springs (then KKFM and KKMG) acquired the station.

In a multi-station swap deal, KKLI was sold in 1999 to Capstar Broadcasting, which merged with Chancellor Broadcasting to become AMFM Inc. and soon after absorbed into Clear Channel Communications.
