History[edit]

94.7 FM signed on the air in 1975 as KBVL. In 1988, Adams Communications assumed control of the station from Sterling Radio. The format would become KHIH/"Smooth Jazz 94-7". Noble Communications would purchase KHOW-AM & KHIH-FM in 1993. Salem Communications would purchase KHIH from Noble in 1994. Salem Media Group (formerly Salem Communications), primarily a company that operates Christian stations, would drop the Smooth Jazz format in September 1994 for its current format. The station was rebranded as 947 FM The Word in January 2017.
