KYLW (1450 AM, "Wild 104.5") is a radio station broadcasting a rhythmic contemporary format. Licensed to Lockwood, Montana, United States, the station serves the Billings area. The station is owned by Sun Mountain, Inc.[1]


On November 28, 2016 KYLW returned to the air with a rhythmic contemporary format, branded as "Wild 104.5" (simulcast on FM translator K283CP Billings).[2]

KYLW's license was canceled on April 26, 2017 for not fully paying debts it owed to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).[3]

KYLW filed a Petition for Reconsideration on May 26, 2017, which was granted on June 9, 2017. The renewal application and license authorization were also granted, and the callsign was reinstated on June 9, 2017.[4]

Due to the loss of its licensed transmitter site, on April 26, 2017 KYLW requested special temporary authority to operate with an emergency antenna and reduced power from an alternate site location. The request was granted on June 14, 2017.[5][6]
