Promoted as "The Music You Want, The News You Need", KBYI broadcasts classical music programming, along with Morning Edition, All Things Considered, and a limited number of LDS-focused religious programming. Local news is planned and produced by BYU-Idaho students. Some 20 students work for BYU-Idaho Radio each semester. Sister station 91.5 KBYR-FM maintains a religious format.
In 2011, KBYI moved to 94.3 MHz. The move was part of a multi-state, multi-station series of changes in frequency assignments, which included three swaps in Rexburg and Idaho Falls. The 94.3 frequency was vacated by KSNA, which moved to 99.1; the 99.1 license of KUPI-FM moved to 100.7; and KBYI moved to 94.3.
KBYI maintains an extensive translator network with many dependent translators in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.
