History

The station signed on the air in February 1977 as KUUZ with a top 40 format. In 1982 the station changed their call letters to KBNY and aired a middle-of-the-road (MOR) format; it later switched to adult contemporary. In 1986, the call letters were changed to KFML. In 1987 the call letters were changed to KLCI and by 1989 the format was changed to oldies, and to adult contemporary by 1991.

In 1994 KLCI was branded as "Rock 97" playing a variety of classic and contemporary rock music. KLCI switched to playing only classics as “Classic Rock 97” by 1993. In the mid 1990s, KLCI rebranded as “B96.9, Boise’s Best Rock”. In 1997, the station returned to classic rock as “96.9 The Eagle” KKGL.
