KMGW (99.3 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a classic hits format. Licensed to Naches, Washington, United States, the station is currently owned by Townsquare Media.[1]

History[edit]

On November 17, 2011, KQMY changed their format from adult hits (as "My 99.3") to news/talk, simulcasting KIT 1280 AM.[2]

On February 17, 2012, KQMY changed their call letters to KIT-FM.

On September 18, 2015, 99.3 flipped to rhythmic oldies as "Mega 99.3" with a callsign change to KMGW.[3] KMGW was also Yakima's affiliate for Slow Jams with R. Dub, which previously aired on KFFM-107.3 (Yakima only gets the Sunday night version on KFFM-107.3 as of 2019.)

On February 1, 2019, the rhythmic oldies format was replaced by a classic hits format known as 'MegaHits,' most likely designed to compete against their Radio Yakima competitor KARY-FM.
