KSKK (1070 AM, "The Arrow") is an American radio station licensed to serve the community of Verndale, Minnesota. The station is owned by De La Hunt Broadcasting and the broadcast license is held by DJ Broadcasting Corp.

Programming[edit]

Between 2009 and June 2015, the station has aired a talk radio format branded as "The Talk of the Town". KVKK broadcast various syndicated talk radio programs from different sources. As of December 2011, it is still a talk station, airing Jim Bohannon's America in the Morning plus conservative talk shows hosted by Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh.

History[edit]

This station received its original construction permit from the Federal Communications Commission on August 8, 2002.[1] The new station was assigned the KVKK call sign by the FCC on November 27, 2002.[2]

In October 2005, permit holder D&E Communications applied to the FCC to transfer the construction permit to DJ Broadcasting Corp. The deal was approved by the FCC on November 1, 2005, and the transaction was consummated on November 4, 2005.[3] KVKK received its license to cover from the FCC on December 5, 2005.[4]

Former country branding

When first launched, KVKK broadcast a classic country music format, including syndicated programming from Dial Global.[5]

On June 30, 2015, KVKK changed their call letters to KSKK and picked up the "Arrow" adult contemporary format from KSKK 94.7 FM Staples, MN, which moved to the Detroit Lakes area as 94.5 FM KDLB.

1070 AM was previously occupied by KMOM, an American radio station licensed to Monticello, Minnesota, USA during the 1980s and early 1990s.
