KIOT (102.5 FM, "Coyote 102.5") is an American radio station licensed to Los Lunas, New Mexico, and serving the Albuquerque and Santa Fe radio markets broadcasting a Classic rock format with music from the 1970s through the 1990s. KIOT is unique in its market as it is the only station playing rock music to feature all local disc jockeys. KTEG and KZRR both have disc jockeys that are voice-tracked, and KBZU's programming comes from a satellite.

The station is currently owned by Univision Radio but on February 28, 2008 it was sold to Centennial Broadcasting along with KJFA-FM 105.1, KKSS-FM 97.3, and KKRG-FM 101.3. [1] However as of August 2009, KIOT is still owned by Univision Radio.

History

The station first signed on in 1993 with an eclectic adult music format called "The Coyote". In 1995 it was sold to Simmons Media Group and switched to classic rock as "Arrow 102.5" but kept the KIOT callsign. In Fall 2002 it was sold to Hispanic Broadcasting (which later became Univision Radio in 2003) and renamed "Coyote" to match the callsign the original owners had given it but continues the classic rock format.
