Before KHDKEdit

Formats of KHDK
Name (call signs) Format
KKMI (simulcast) (KKNL) Adult Contemporary (2001-2005)
HOT 97.3 Contemporary Hit Radio (2005–present)

Before CHR made its 2006 debut in the Burlington-Fort Madison area on 97.3, the station was known as KKNL (K K New London). KKNL was actually a simulcast of 93.5 KKMI to provide a better signal to Mount Pleasant, as the 93.5 signal is hard to receive in the Mount Pleasant Area. The simulcast lasted for four years, until late-2005 when KKNL broke away from KKMI, emerging as the Tri-States New Hit Music Channel: Hot 97 dot 3.
