History[edit]

KSEI's history dates back to 1926, and for many years the station was East Idaho's NBC affiliate.

On August 15, 1947, KSEI increased its power to 5 KW full-time. It had been operating with 1 KW during the day and 250 W at night. Also on that day, KSEI-FM began broadcasting on 96.5 MHz.[2]

KSEI was the dominant Top 40 station in the Pocatello area in the 1970s and into the 1980s.

The station was sold, along with sister station KMGI, by Pacific Empire Radio to Idaho Wireless Corporation in November 2014. The studios were relocated at the same time.[3] The purchase was consummated on July 9, 2015, at a price of $850,000.
