KTRR-FM (102.5 FM, TRI 102.5) is a radio station broadcasting a Classic Hits format. Licensed to Loveland, Colorado, United States, the station is currently owned by Townsquare Media.[1]

History[edit]

Throughout its history the station has aired an adult contemporary format. It started out as an easy listening leaning adult contemporary format. Ninety percent of the music involved vocals. Throughout the next twenty-five years it operated as an adult contemporary or soft adult contemporary format. For a time in the early 2000 TRI 102 flirted with a Hot AC format before returning to mainstream AC at the end of the decade.

During the 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2014 holiday seasons, TRI 102.5 played non-stop christmas music, which ran each year from 8AM on November 15 until 12AM on December 26.

In 2015 TRI 102 went into a new direction. Part of it was due to Clear Channel launching a soft AC format from one of the HD2 of their stations. TRI 102 changed its format from soft rock to a more current-based format. They dumped Delilah which the new Sunny 107 picked up. TRI 102.5 could then be seen as the de facto hot AC station for Fort Collins and Northern Colorado. Even though KKPL is the true hot AC, they have moved more into a Top 40 direction to compete with 96.1 KISS FM (not to mention, they are technically a Cheyenne, Wyoming-based rimshot).

The makeover failed to raise ratings, and on September 9, 2016, KTRR flipped to Classic Hits, retaining the "Tri 102.5" name and most of its 80s/90s hits, but dropping all post-2000 music and readding some 70s music.
