From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
KLTA (105.1 FM, "FM 105.1") is a radio station based in Fargo,
North Dakota, though licensed by the FCC to Breckenridge, Minnesota. It is
owned by Go Radio
Broadcasting, a division of Triad Broadcasting. The station runs
a Hot AC format which plays current and past
popular pop and Top Forty songs.
Triad Broadcasting also owns KQWB 1660 (Sports), KQWB-FM 98.7 (Active rock), KVOX 99.9 (Country), and KPFX 107.9 (Classic rock) in the Fargo-Moorhead area.
The station signed on as KKIB in 1983 as the flagship
station of contemporary hit radio (Top 40)
formatted Superstation Double K FM network,
which was also broadcast on KKWS
105.9 FM in Wadena, Minnesota and KKVC in Valley City, North Dakota. It
then became KLTA in 1984 with an Adult
Contemporary format as "Lite Rock 105". KLTA tweaked to a Hot AC format
in 2004 with the "FM 105.1" moniker. In March 2006, a Radio Data
System (RDS) was installed to the transmitter which brought
title and artist information along with the broadcast to cars that
accepted the RDS signal. KLTA's website later offered an online
stream in April 2006.
In May 1999, Triad Broadcasting reached a deal to acquire this
station from Brothers Jim and Tom Instad as part of a
twelve-station deal valued at a reported $37.8 million.
