History[edit]

KLTC began broadcasting in July 4th 1978 at 12 Noon, at that time there was only one radio station broadcasting 18 hours a day with a Top 40/AC format in Dickinson ND and signed off at midnight. The nearest receivable radio stations in the daytime were Baker, Montana, Bismarck, North Dakota, Lemmon, South Dakota, and Williston, North Dakota at night reception of these radio station were limited at best. Roughrider Broadcasting Company decided that Dickinson and Southwestern North Dakota needed a radio station that broadcast 24 hours a day hence KLTC was born. KLTC Radio was the First 5,000 Watt station west of the Missouri River in North Dakota. KLTC has been formatted with country music ever since, except for a brief period in 2004 when KLTC was formatted oldies. KLTC was originally owned by Roughrider Broadcasting until 1998, when Roberts Radio bought the properties and in 2001 Clear Channel Communications acquired KLTC along with sister stations KCAD and KZRX . KLTC stands for Keep Lovin' Thy Country. KLTC Radio is proud to have Paul Quinn who is a radio legend in Southwest North Dakota and has been broadcasting on KLTC since March 1979. Paul had worked every shift on KLTC starting with overnights and is now the morning host. Big Country To Boot was the Original slogan when KLTC Signed on and now in its 36th year The Boot is Back...the slogan has returned to what it was back in 1978.
