HistoryEdit

The first known format of then KOCY-FM was rock music and the station was known as "96X." The station later changed its calls in 1973 to KXXY-FM and was also known as "96 Rock." The station changed formats to country in the 1980s. A simulcast was carried on AM 1340 KXXY-AM (now KEBC) for a short time as well. Sometime in late 2018 96.1 KXY started adding newer country in rotation!
