KBLL is a radio station licensed to serve Helena, Montana. Owned by Kevin Terry, through licensee The Montana Radio Company, LLC, it broadcasts a country music format branded as 99.5 The Bull.


In April 2004, a deal was reached for KBLL-FM to be acquired by Cherry Creek Radio from Holter Broadcasting Corp. (Jann Holter-Lambert, president) as part of a 2 station deal with a total reported sale price of $2.8 million.[2]

On April 5, 2017, Montana Radio Company announced that it would acquire Cherry Creek Media's Helena stations.[3][4] Following the completion of the purchase on July 28, 2017, KBLL-FM re-aligned its format to include more classic country material to differentiate it from new sister station KIMO.[5]
