KSKG (99.9 FM, "99KG") is a radio station broadcasting a country music format.[1] Licensed to Salina, Kansas, United States, the station serves the Salina-Manhattan area. The station is currently owned by Eagle Communications, Inc.[2]

The first FM station in the Salina market, KSKG went on the air in 1961 using the call letters KAFM (Keeping Alive Fine Music). The original owner was Wayne Pollard dba Salina F-M, Inc. Pollard built the first studios on the top floor of the United Building in downtown Salina and would broadcast a full service format with 3.6 KW of power. The station became KSKG in 1970 and switched to a Top 40 format. During this time, the station adopted the nickname "99KG".[3]

In 1996, the station switched to a country format and was re-branded "Eagle Country 99.9". The very first song that was played when the format was flipped from Top 40 to country was "Sweet Country Music" by Atlanta. The "99KG" moniker was brought back in 2008. KSKG's sister station is KINA. KSKG is an affiliate of the Kansas City Chiefs radio network and the Bobby Bones Show.
