The stations studios are located at 303 Canyon Street, in West Yellowstone. The transmitter site is south of town, on Broadcast Trail Road, near the west gate to Yellowstone National Park.
In March 2007, Denver-based Blue Point Media announced that it was set to merge with KWYS owner Chaparral Broadcasting Inc. Chaparral Broadcasting also owns four other radio stations in Wyoming as well as three stations in Idaho.
On March 25, 2009, an application was filed with the FCC to transfer control of KWYS (AM) from Chaparral to Radio West, LLC, which is controlled by Richard and Joyce Howe. This application was granted by the FCC, and the Howe's now operate the station.
