The station was originally given the call sign KMHK, and went on the air between August and October 1947. For a few months in late 1950, the station used the call sign KORM. In 1950, after the call letters KORN had been given up by a station in Fremont, Nebraska that had recently become KFGT (and has subsequently become KHUB), the call sign KORN became available and was taken by the former KORM.
Famed radio announcer Gary Owens, of Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In fame, started his radio career at KORN in 1952, where he served as News Director.
In February 2008, Riverfront Broadcasting LLC of Yankton, South Dakota reached an agreement with NRG Media to purchase this station as part of a six station deal.
In late 2016, Riverfront Broadcasting LLC sold the station, along with sister stations Q107.3, and KORN Country 92.1 to KORN’s General Manager, Nancy Nedved. Effective Sunday, January 1, 2017, the three station group is now known as Nedved Media, LLC.
