The station also broadcasts an HD Radio subchannel featuring an adult album alternative format branded as Radio 94.9, which is named in reference to its analog translator K235BT on 94.9 FM.


The station broadcast a country music format as KGLL-FM, 96.1 The Eagle until October 7, 2000, when it flipped to CHR as 96.1 Kiss FM. It initially carried Rick Dees in the Morning from KIIS-FM until 2002, when it switched to a local morning show hosted by program director Chris Kelly. After being moved to the afternoon in November 2008, Kelly was replaced with Johnjay and Rich from KZZP.

In December 2017, an HD Radio simulcast of adult album alternative K235BT moved from KPAW to KSME.
