MyTalk 107.1 (107.1 MHz FM) is an entertainment-oriented talk radio station. The MyTalk broadcast signal reaches the Twin Cities, greater Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, as well as parts of North Dakota and South Dakota. MyTalk streams via the MyTalk1071.com and the MyTalk107.1 Mobile App. The station is owned and operated by Hubbard Broadcasting.
The station was originally licensed to serve New Richmond, Wisconsin as WIXK-FM, simulcasting the country music format of that city's WIXK 1590 AM. Hubbard Broadcasting bought both stations in 2000 for $27 million and moved WIXK-FM to the immediate Twin Cities area, where the station's city of license was changed from New Richmond to Coon Rapids, Minnesota and its transmitter moved to the Telefarm installation in Shoreview.
On June 3, 2002, WIXK-FM adopted the WFMP call sign and dropped country in favor of a talk format, originally branded as "FM 107" ("real. life. conversation."), that emphasized issues, topics, and conversations that catered to a female audience. The original FM 107 schedule included national call-in/advice shows featuring Dr. Laura Schlessinger, Dr. Joy Browne, and Clark Howard, but locally produced programming would make up a majority of the schedule in later years.
The "myTalk 107.1" branding officially went into effect in February 2010.
MyTalk has been recognized for its loyal listening base.
The original myTalk lineup was Ian and Margery (morning drive), Colleen and The Boys (mid-morning), Jason and Alexis (afternoons), Lori and Julia (afternoon drive), and Brian and Shelletta (evenings from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.). The Brian and Shelletta show was cancelled in July 2010. The 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. slot was replaced by a Jason and Alexis show rebroadcast. Colleen and The Boys (hosted by Colleen Kruse, Chris Reuvers, and G.R. Anderson) was cancelled March 2012, and the timeslot was replaced by the Colleen and Bradley show (hosted by Colleen Lindstrom and Bradley Traynor). While minor on-air talent and schedule changes have occurred, the it has remained largely unchanged since adopting the myTalk branding in February 2010.
In 2007, the station heeded a call from condemned inmate Philip Workman to have vegetarian pizza delivered to homeless residents of Nashville, Tennessee.
KTMY has been broadcasting a HD radio signal since October 2011. The station's HD-2 subchannel aired a simulcast of the sports format of sister station KSTP (AM); that simulcast moved to a subchannel of KSTP-FM in December 2013. The HD2 is now simulcasting the oldies format of Borgen Broadcasting-owned WDGY.
