Frequency history[edit]

The 100.5 frequency is the newest and most recent frequency to sign on in Wichita. The frequency would officially sign on the air on March 30, 2006, with an adult hits format, branded as "100.5 Bob FM" and call letters KIBB. On February 14, 2008, the adult hits format and KIBB call letters would be moved to the newly acquired 97.1 frequency. 100.5 would flip to a country format, branded as "100.5 The Wolf". The station would temporarily hold 97.1's former KGGG call letters until February 21, when the station switched call letters with a station in Iowa. The Wolf started with a "10,000 songs in a row" promotion, which is common among newer radio stations, in order to attract an audience.

On November 23, 2015, KVWF changed their format to classic country, branded as "100.5 Hank FM".[1] The move takes place almost a year after former classic country station KFTI-FM was sold to Envision and flipped to Rhythmic AC (the format was subsequently moved to 1070 AM).
