WKOS (104.9 FM), branded as "104.9 KOS", is a radio station serving the Tri-Cities, Tennessee, area with hot AC music from the 1980s to right now. This station is under ownership of Citadel Broadcasting.



This station was WGAT-FM Mar. 13, 1979, WZXY on Oct. 14, 1981, and changed to its current letters on July 1, 1991.[1]

In the 1980s, the station was a CHR-formatted station under the call letters WZXY. Through much of the 1990s and a large part of the 2000s the format was oldies ("Good Times Great Oldies")[2] and then adult hits. The station was called "The Peak" when it changed to hot adult contemporary.

Sports coverage

In 2007, the East Tennessee State University men's basketball team moved its games from WJCW to WKOS. This marked the first time the team was heard on FM radio.[3]
