OwnershipEdit

In February 2008, Colorado-based GAPWEST Broadcasting completed the acquisition of 57 radio stations in 13 markets in the Pacific Northwest-Rocky Mountain region from Clear Channel Communications.[3] The deal, valued at a reported $74 million, included six Bozeman stations, seven in Missoula and five in Billings. Other stations in the deal are located in Shelby, Montana, and in Casper and Cheyenne, Wyoming, plus Pocatello and Twin Falls, Idaho, and Yakima, Washington. GapWest was folded into Townsquare Media on August 13, 2010.[4]

HistoryEdit

KMMS started out as KUUB 95 the Kube, Yellowstone Country's hit music. It was Bozemans home of the original American Top 40. In 1991, the station flipped to a hybrid Rock/Alternative/Adult Rock format. This left Bozeman without a pop music station for ten years until KSCY (KISN) flipped from Adult Contemporary.
