KMYO-FM (96.7 FM, "Oldies 96.7") is a radio station broadcasting a Oldies format. Licensed to New Orleans, Louisiana, and Morgan City, Louisiana, USA, the station is currently owned by Sunburst Media-Louisiana, LLC.[1]

The station serves the Houma/Thibodaux metropolitan area of Southeastern Louisiana

History

This station was originally a Hot Adult Contemporary station focused on the East St. Mary Parish area centered on Morgan City, Louisiana as KMRC-FM at the time a 2,500 watt class A FM station. They flipped calls in 1979, to KFXY known locally as "Foxy 96" still broadcasting the Hot AC format. In the 1990s, the station changed hands to Guaranty Broadcasting of Baton Rouge who moved the station's studio to Houma and in 2000, the station changed calls to KBZZ with the slogan changing to "96.7 the Buzz" playing the same format.

In 2001, the station was officially licensed for the upgrade from the 2,500 watt station setup located north of Morgan City to a newer location on a tower in the town of Gibson, Louisiana improving the coverage in the Houma/Thibodaux area due to the increase in power to present day 12,000 watts and an increase of roughly 20 meters in height.

In 2006, the station was sold to Sunburst Media and the format was flipped to a gold (oldies based) adult contemporary format that apparently didn't bring in the listeners as hoped and in August 2007, the station flipped to its current oldies format as KMYO focusing mainly on 1960s and 1970s era top 40 oldies.
