KYGO-FM is Colorado's secondary (LP-2) Emergency Alert System station. KOA is the primary (LP-1) station.
The station signed on the air in 1953 as KFML, but following the sale of the station to Jefferson-Pilot Broadcasting in 1974, adopted the KIMN-FM call letters. The station changed call letters to KYGO in 1979 and later that year changed from contemporary hits to the country music format. Bob Call, previously of WSOC-FM in Charlotte, North Carolina, flipped the switch; when he started at WSOC he knew little about country music but learned fast.
In June 2007 Lincoln announced that would put its television and radio stations up for sale. KYGO, along with its sister stations in Denver, is among the properties being shopped around by Lincoln.
In 2007, the station was named Country music station of the year in a top 25 market by Radio & Records magazine. Other nominees included WUSN Chicago, WYCD Detroit, KEEY-FM Minneapolis, WXTU Philadelphia, and KSON-FM San Diego.
