KMJM (1360 AM) is a radio station licensed to serve Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The station is owned by iHeartMedia, Inc. and licensed to Capstar TX Limited Partnership. It airs a classic country music format including Cedar Rapids Roughriders Hockey, Coe College Football, and occasionally Iowa Hawkeyes Women's Basketball.[2]

History[edit]

The Cedar Rapids allocation for 1360 AM signed on in 1961, alongside its FM sister station at 98.1 FM, both taking on the call letters KHAK. Both stations formatted country music -- although not exclusively until sometime later in the 1960s -- and for many years the AM signal was duplicated on the FM frequency.

At some point in the mid-1990s, KHAK-AM changed its format to contemporary Christian as KTOF-AM, and was a simulcast of KWOF in Hiawatha, Iowa.[3] On December 19, 2001, the station switched callsigns to the current KMJM[1] and began airing a nostalgia format of "American music classics" from the 1930s and 1940s.[3]

On January 11, 2010 KMJM flipped to its current format of classic country.
