KLMO. The station used to broadcast a Country musicformat until March 22, 2000, when the Radio Colorado Network was launched. KKKK in Colorado Springs was known as KPIK in the 1970s and 1980s. As KPIK the station went through several format changes. It was Country, Christian, and Spanish. The station went dark in 1987 and returned to the air in 1988 as KWYD-AM. The station at first played a Country Gospel format but after the sale of their heritage FM sister (see KRDO-FMfor information on KWYD-FM), most of the programing that aired on the FM migrated to the AM. Pilgrim bought KWYD-AM in 1998 and kept the Christian format for a while. By 2001 it began to phase out its Christian programing and simulcast more programing from KRCN. The station changed its call letters to KKKK in 2005.
