KIZN is a commercial radio station located in Boise, Idaho, broadcasting on 92.3 FM. KIZN airs a country music format branded as Kissin 92.3.

History

The station was launched in December 1967 as KATN-FM. On August 1, 1968, the call letters were changed to KBBK. On January 2, 1978, KBBK flipped to a new Top 40 format branded as Magic 92, one of the first full-time FM Top 40 stations in the Boise market. In 1984, KBBK changed their call letters to KIYS and rebranded as 92 Kiss FM. In 1990, the station switched to country format as Kissin' 92, and changed the call letters to KIZN.

In early 2013, along with branding changes at sister station KQFC, Cumulus adjusted the name of the station from Kissin' 92 to KISSIN 92.3.

On April 3, 2017, a staff shuffle happened between KIZN and sister station KQFC; KQFC afternoon host Rick Daniels over to KIZN for the same shift.[1][2] Also, KIZN debuted a new logo.

On October 1, 2017, Shawnda McNeal [3][4][5][6] was hired to join market veteran Cory Mikhals on the KIZN morning shift. The morning show was rebranded as "Idaho's Morning Show".
