The station went on the air in 1991 playing soft adult contemporary music, switching to an oldies format in April 2001.

KXAC eventually shifted to classic hits as "Classic Hits 100.5 KXAC", dropping the former "Oldies 100.5" brand.

On November 21, 2018 at 10 am KXAC dropped its classic hits format and began stunting with Christmas music as "100.5 The Christmas Igloo", with a new format to launch after the holidays.[1]

On December 26, 2018, KXAC relaunched its classic hits format, rebranding as "Magic 100.5".[2]
