WKTT (97.5 FM, "Live 97.5") is a radio station licensed to serve Salisbury, Maryland, USA. The station, which began broadcasting in 1969, is currently owned by Rojo Broadcasting, LLC.

WKTT broadcasts an urban contemporary format.

After nearly 40 years of broadcasting as WICO-FM, the station was assigned the current WKTT call sign by the Federal Communications Commission on March 30, 2009.[1]

History[edit]

WICO-FM, as it was known at the time, originally broadcast at 94.3 FM. WICO-FM moved up the dial to 97.5 FM in the late 1990s which cleared the way for WINX-FM to sign on the air at 94.3 FM in Cambridge, Maryland.

WKTT and sister station WICO were purchased effective May 12, 2016 from Delmarva Broadcasting Company by Robin Rothschild, at a purchase price of $300,000.

On March 1, 2017 WKTT changed their format from country to urban contemporary, branded as "Live 97.5" after it was sold to Rojo Broadcasting, LLC for $305,000.[2]
