KSRZ started in 1972 as KOOO, a country music station. In 1979, the station changed their call letters to KESY and flipped to an automated beautiful music format. In 1993, the format changed to smooth jazz and used live DJs once again. The format was short lived and the station flipped to adult contemporary. In 1997, KESY was moved to the 97.7 FM frequency, opening the 104.5 FM frequency, which ushered in KSRZ and the modern adult contemporary format.
Journal Communications and The E.W. Scripps Company announced on July 30, 2014 that the two companies would merge to create a new broadcast company under the E.W. Scripps Company name that will own the two companies' broadcast properties, including KSRZ. The transaction is slated to be completed in 2015, pending shareholder and regulatory approvals.
