The station was assigned the KZMT call letters by the Federal Communications Commission on October 8, 1984.[1]

History[edit]

In August 2000, a deal was reached for KZMT to be acquired by Commonwealth Communications LLC from STARadio Corp. as part of a 9 station deal with a total reported sale price of $7.5 million.[3]

In October 2003, a deal was reached for KZMT to be acquired by Cherry Creek Radio from Commonwealth Communications LLC as part of a 24 station deal with a total reported sale price of $41 million.[4]

In 2014, KZMT dropped the Dial Global syndicated Classic Rock programming in favor of locally-produced programming, with the only exception being the regional syndication of Classic Rock sister (Z100 Missoula) morning show Brian and Chris.

On April 5, 2017, Montana Radio Company announced that it would acquire Cherry Creek Media's Helena stations.[5][6] The purchase was consummated on July 28, 2017.
