History[edit]

The station went on the air as KFFV on February 7, 1984 at 104.9 MHz, as Contemporary Hit Radio/Top 40 "Kiss 105". On May 29, 1984, the station changed its call sign to the current KKYS to match the station brand. In 1991, KKYS moved frequency down one channel to 104.7 to accommodate an upgrade to another facility located on 104.9 near Llano, allowing that facility to move into the Austin market.

On January 16, 1998, it switched to KOZN, and switched back to the current KKYS later on the same day.

In 2009 the station softened to adult contemporary format but still kept its slogan of "a better mix".[2]
