The station (formerly KBOM) has had numerous formats in recent years from the long-running "K-Bomb" oldies format that had relocated (along with the KBOM call-sign) from 106.7 FM (now KAGM) after it was sold in late 2000, to Rhythmic Top 40 as "The Bomb" from 2002-2004, smooth jazz in 2004-2005, and simulcasting the news and talk format from sister station KAGM 106.3 in Albuquerque. In September 2006 listeners were asked to vote for the new format on a website that had been set up after the KAGM simulcast was discontinued. The result would be "High Altitude Rock" a mix of classic rock, alternative, and adult album alternative aimed at outdoor enthusiasts. The format was planned to move to KVSF-FM 101.5 which was purchased by Hutton Broadcasting but had instead changed to "Project 101.5".
On June 29, 2007, 94.7 became KKIM-FM with a religious format that was simulcast from KKIM (AM) 1000 in Albuquerque.
On November 5, 2012, KKIM-FM switched to a Regional Mexican music format branded as "Radio Lobo" simulcast from KLVO in Belen/Albuquerque.
In April 2015, American General Media and Hutton Broadcasting agreed to swap stations in Santa Fe, with KKIM-FM going to Hutton and KLBU 102.9 going to AGM. On June 30, 2015 the callsign on the booster for 102.9 in Santa Fe was changed to KSFE-1 while KLBU-1 was assigned to the 94.7 booster however KLBU remained the callsign for 102.9 and KKIM-FM for 94.7 until July 31.
On July 31, 2015, KKIM-FM changed their call letters to KLBU and changed their format to rhythmic hot adult contemporary, branded as "Jam'n 94.7". Radio Lobo moved to KSFE 102.9.
