KKLI (106.3 FM) is a radio station broadcasting an Mainstream AC format. Licensed to Widefield, Colorado, United States, it serves the Colorado Springs area. The station is currently owned by iHeartMedia. On November 6, 2014 K-Lite rebranded as Sunny 106.3.
The station signed on in 1987 as KKQX, broadcasting a soft AC format. It changed to its present call letters KKLI in 1988 when a Portland, Oregon station dropped the respected calls and changed its format. 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. Clear Channel Communications became iHeartMedia in 2014, after its increasingly successful iHeartRadio internet radio platform.
