KTRW (630 AM) is a locally-owned adult standards radio station based in Spokane, Washington, USA. It operates at 630 kHz with power of 530 watts (day) and 53 watts (night).

Though it uses the KTW callsign in its marketing materials, KTRW is not related to the original Seattle radio station KTW which was at 1250 kHz and is now called KKDZ.[1]

The station is owned by Mutual Broadcasting System, LLC (owned by Thomas Read, owner of KSPO), which is unrelated to the defunct nationwide radio network of the same name; however, the station has been using this and the Liberty Broadcasting System name as part of the station's promotion.

History[edit]

KTRW was originally at 970 kHz and was the home of KREM-TV's AM sister until it was sold off to different owners in the 1980s. The station then went on the air as KKPL on 3 April 1985. On 11 January 1989, the station changed its call sign to KHDL. On 5 November 1999, the station became KXLI and on 24 October 2005, the current KTRW.[2] On September 25, 2005, the station changed frequency to KXLI's 630 signal and changed its format to adult standards. The format includes Christian music, news and talk.
