Classic hits and then classic rock (2010s-present)

At some point after 2010 KKRQ switched to a classic hits format with elements of classic rock (similar to WROR, Boston and WJJK, Indianapolis), playing a variety of music from the 1960s through to the 2000s. At night the station switched purely to classic rock with Sixx Sense with Nikki Sixx.[citation needed] In 2021, KKRQ dropped the classic hits portion of their playlist and segued into a full time classic rock format emphasizing the "Classic Rock" slogan.
