HistoryEdit

KSEG has been programming this format since November 12, 1990, when it flipped from a Rhythmic Contemporary format when it was KROY. The first song under the new format was "Fly Like an Eagle" by the Steve Miller Band.[1] They also serve as the complementary sister station to ESPN Radio affiliate KIFM, Active Rock KRXQ, Top 40 Mainstream KUDL, Rhythmic contemporary KSFM, and Modern rock KKDO.

KSEG airs a local lineup as well as the House of Blues Radio Hour with Elwood Blues.

KSEG-HD2Edit
