History[edit]

On October 1, 2010 KLTD changed their format from mainstream rock (as "Eagle 101.7") to sports, branded as "The Ticket".

On March 15, 2013, at 5 PM, the station began stunting as "The Bone" with "music for dogs." The stunt lasted until the following Monday, when a new permanent format debuted as classic hits, branded as "K101.7".[2]
